Update to the “Reopening Safer at Work and in the Community for Control of COVID-19”
Order and What it Means to Rosemead Residents and Businesses
On Monday, July 13, 2020, Governor Newsom ordered the State to revert to the closures of non-essential facilities and businesses and once again urged the communities to maintain a “Safer At Home” approach, which suggests we stay at home to slow the spread of the coronavirus (COVID-19). While this might be disappointing for us, given the public nature of the essential services we provide, we must consider the welfare of our employees, residents, and businesses, especially as an additional precaution in public health.
Effective Monday, July 20, 2020, until further notice, the City of Rosemead City Hall will be closed to the public, all other citywide facilities will remain closed. The City recognizes that many of you may be experiencing concerns regarding COVID-19. Again, this action intends to avoid the spread of COVID-19 by having people shelter in place (another way of saying stay home) at their residence while enabling only essential services to continue. When people need to leave their place of residence to obtain or perform vital services or to conduct activities necessary for continuity of social and commercial life, they must maintain a distance of at least six feet from other persons and always wear a face covering. Failure to comply with the provisions of this action constitutes a threat to public health. We understand that residents and stakeholders have questions regarding how to continue to conduct business with the City, in light of this action. City staff will continue to provide the following services:
- City Council Meetings: The City will continue to live stream City Council meetings. Citizens may submit a remote public comment by calling (626) 569-2100 or via email at email@example.com.
