As of Tuesday, May 26th, the City of Boulder City Parks & Rec, City Hall and the Police Department will be phasing in the allowance of visitors into their offices by appointment only.
City staff still encourage that as much business as possible still be conducted by phone or email as the best, safest way to operate, according to the CDC guidelines. However, it’s face it, sometimes you do need person to person contact.
According to the press release from the City:
“All customers must make an appointment in advance to enter city facilities,” said Fire Chief Will Gray, who has been Incident Commander of the COVID-19 response in Boulder City. “During the check-in at the front desk, visitors will answer the COVID-19 Self-Check Screening and have their temperature taken. If approved to enter, they will be directed to a conference room to meet with the employee.”
The new guidelines include:
Visitors answer the COVID-19 Self-Check Screening Questions.
Customers must have their temperature taken.
Visitors will be strongly encouraged to wear face coverings. The City of Boulder
City will offer a face covering to customers who don’t have one.
Customers will be reminded to practice social distancing.
Customers are encouraged to use hand sanitizer whenever hand washing is not
possible. Hand-sanitizer dispensers are located at select entrances and contact
areas such as reception areas, lobbies, and meeting spaces.
Customers will not be allowed into common office areas for employees. Only
designated areas will be provided for customer meetings with employees.
You can expect clear plexiglass at various department windows to help keep everyone safe as they interact. City meetings, such as tonight’s City Council meeting will continue to be live streamed.
