City Council Meeting Attendee Tests Positive for COVID-19
City officials reported today that an attendee at the September 15 City Council meeting has tested positive for Coronavirus. Out of an abundance of caution, tonight’s Committee of the Whole meeting was cancelled and the Hopkinsville Municipal Center was closed for sanitizing. However, the Municipal Center will reopen on Friday, September 18 with normal business hours.
The public is reassured that guidelines from the city’s Healthy at Work reopening plan were in place for all employees and guests at the meeting. Those guidelines include limiting in-person meeting capacity to 50%, mandatory temperature checks, use of face coverings, and additional facility cleanings. Also, the building is equipped with hand sanitizer stations and floor decals reminding all to practice social distancing.
