The City of Derby will re-open City Hall, the Welcome Center and the Senior Center on Wednesday, June 17. Offices have been closed since March 18 due to COVID-19. The City has added safety features to help prevent the spread of COVID-19.
At City Hall, plexiglass sneeze guards have been installed at the customer service front desk to separate staff from the public, and hand sanitizer is available for use by the public upon entering and exiting the building. Staff members who directly interact with residents will wear masks or ensure social distancing. Visitors are strongly encouraged to wear a face mask when visiting City Hall at least until you are confident safe distancing can be ensured at all times while in the building.
The Senior Center also is taking precautions:
“It will not be business as usual at the Derby Senior Center,” said Kathy Sexton, City Manager. “After being closed for three months, we are pleased to offer seniors the opportunity to interact with friends and engage in physical activities in an environment adapted to COVID-19 risks. The CDC’s continued recommendations against travel make activities in the community the preferred option for the foreseeable future.”
The City is also using an electrostatic disinfectant cleaning process in the building to provide protection for up to three weeks. Electrostatic spray surface cleaning is the process of spraying an electrostatically charged mist onto surfaces.
In everything we do, safety is our highest priority. We will continue to monitor the COVID-19 situation closely. Rules and procedures will be amended as needed. There is a lot about COVID-19 we do not know. This plan is based on the best information currently available and may change as our knowledge improves.
