MARIETTA – The City of Marietta will remain open and able to provide government services to all its residents in the midst of the COVID-19 situation.

We share the same concerns of our residents. To that end we are taking additional steps to ensure that we are doing all we can to safeguard the health and well-being of our employees, their families and our residents. All City Buildings and floors within those buildings now have dispensers installed with hand sanitizer available to the public and employees. We also have access to sanitizing machines. We plan to use them to sanitize prisoner transport vans, police cars, fire trucks and any other equipment that is in the field and can come in contact with the public. We will also sanitize buildings and other public places as needed.

City staff is actively contacting individuals and organizations which have events scheduled in City parks or City property over the next two months. We will continue an open line of communication with these groups in the event of any delayed, canceled, and rescheduled events and will distribute changes via various forms of media.

We are in constant contact with the Cobb Douglas Public Health Department on a daily basis. Our leadership is participating in regular conference calls with Federal Agencies and the White House. The City has plans in place to respond to staff reductions resulting from any illnesses and we have solutions we can use if needed to ensure continuation of services. We will continue to provide all the important and necessary services that our community depends upon while protecting our employees.

If you are experiencing flu like symptoms (fever, cough, shortness of breath) and have been in close contact with a person known to have COVID-19 or have recently traveled from an area with widespread or ongoing community spread of COVID-19, Cobb Douglas Public Health strongly recommends that you contact your physician.

Remember, we can all do our part to minimize the spread of any Flu (and COVID-19) by doing the following

• WASH YOUR HANDS, often, for a least 20 seconds

• Avoid close contact with people who are sick

• Avoid touching your eyes, nose, and mouth

• Stay home when you are sick

• Cover your cough or sneeze with a tissue, then throw the tissue in the trash or cough and sneeze into your elbow

• Clean and disinfect frequently touched object and surfaces using a household cleaners

We have a website to keep track of any City events which are canceled or postponed and plan on updating the details daily. Please visit http://www.mariettaga.gov/1357/COVID-19-Information to view additional information.
