City of Berkley COVID-19 Update - September 29, 2020
We would like to share with the Berkley community that City Hall is transitioning to "Phase 3: Maintenance" of our COVID-19 Recovery and Reopening Plan.
What does this mean for our City?
Starting Tuesday, October 6, 2020, City Hall will be open to the public during normal working business hours.
City Hall office hours are as follows:
- Monday - Friday, 8:30 AM - 5 PM
- (Closed from 1-2 PM every day)
What to Expect When Entering a City Building
In order for us to continue providing exceptional City services, we ask that you review our COVID-19 safety procedures to ensure the health and safety of our staff. Many of our departments operate within a small space. If one member of a department gets COVID-19, the entire department must be quarantined.
The City's COVID-19 safety procedure includes the following:
- All staff will be wearing personal protective equipment (PPE) and are submitted to a daily COVID-19 screening questionnaire
- Installation of sneeze shields
- Installation of hand sanitizing stations
- Markers placed on the floor to maintain social distancing
- Signs encouraging social distancing and best practices will be prominently posted throughout the building and on the entrance door
- Patrons are required to wear a mask when entering the building
