Coronaviruses are a group of viruses that can cause illnesses ranging from mild diseases, such as a cold, to more serious illnesses, such as pneumonia. Recently, a new coronavirus was detected that had not been previously seen in humans. The disease, called COVID 19, can be spread from person to person.
Everyone should monitor their health closely and stay home. Only go out for essential supplies and services, such as groceries or urgent medical care.
Staying home will help slow the spread of COVID 19 and will protect others from becoming critically ill and dying. Staying home also protects essential workers, including health care providers and retail workers, who must continue to work. Essential workers need to stay healthy to continue to provide services, such as caring for the sick and keeping groceries and food available.
The City of Dover is tasked with managing the resources necessary to ensure continuity of essential city services, such as utility operations, during this challenging time. The City of Dover is making every effort to run "business as usual" for city-provided services, but will be complying with directives from local and state health officials to ensure we are doing our part to reduce the transmission of COVID-19 in our community. Some of the measures include reducing the risk of exposing City of Dover employees to possible sources of transmission. This may create inconvenience at times, but is necessary to ensure the continuity of operations and resulting services provided by the City of Dover for its citizens.
