Accessing City Services During COVID-19

How the City is Responding.
We activated our Emergency Operations Center, which is in accordance with the Oakland County Health Department, to coordinate response and prepare for a potential outbreak. Our Emergency Operations staff have been and continue to work closely with Oakland County Health Department and Oakland County Homeland Security, the state, and federal officials to protect our community as we respond to this developing situation.


This is a new disease, and scientists are learning more about it daily. Recommendations may change rapidly. Stay up to date with City messages by signing up for our community news email list

It is important to note that this is a fluid reopen process. Information changes constantly and we are trying to adapt as best we can. Our first priority is our staff and the public's safety. 

Transitions to each phase will be determined by State & County guidelines, along with staff capabilities.

What to Expect When City Facilities Open
  • Masks are not required for the public but are strongly encouraged due to the increased rate of community transmission given the rise of COVID-19 cases and its associated variants.
  • Staff are required to wear masks to ensure their protection.  
  • Staff will continue frequent cleaning procedures, especially for high-touch surface areas such as service counters.
  • Signs encouraging social distancing and best practices will be prominently posted throughout the buildings and on the entrance doors.
  • Plastic shields or "Sneeze Guards" will remain over the counters to limit person-to-person contact with staff and residents.
  • Hand sanitizer stations will be maintained at all entrances.

All of the above practices will be determined by CDC, State, and County guidelines, and may be altered if and when needed.
