PUBLIC NOTICE: In response to the COVID-19 pandemic, City Hall and all other city facilities are closed to the public effective noon March 20, 2020 – until further notice. Indian River County had its first case reported last night, it is critical that each of us do our part to reduce community spread in order to help slow the transmission of the virus to allow our medical community the time it needs to prepare.

During this pandemic we all have the responsibility to social distance — which means limiting all in-person social interactions as much as possible. Experts agree that staying physically apart is critical if we want to reduce the strain on our health care system and slow the spread of this virus to save lives. Beginning March 20, 2020 City departments are asking members of the public to conduct business remotely. Please use email or phones for questions and correspondence.

Emailing is the most effective way to communicate during this time and our staff will respond to your questions as soon as possible.

Directions for how you may contact our City departments during this closure are listed below. Many of these temporary procedures are being put in place at the directive of our Federal and State government. We also take directives from the County Health Department to make these decisions.

Coronavirus Information

The world health community continues to monitor closely the emergence of the SARS-COV-2 virus and the disease it causes, named "coronavirus disease 2019" (COVID-19). At this time, no one knows the extent of this outbreak, how long it may reside or what areas may be affected. Given this uncertainty, and the fact that the seasonal influenza (flu) virus is also widespread, we are taking proactive steps to address a number of City concerns. We encourage practices protecting the health of the public and for everyone to cooperate in taking steps to reduce the transmission of communicable diseases:

  • Wash your hands frequently with warm, soapy water for at least 20 seconds. (The time it takes to sing the Birthday Song twice.)
  • If soap and water are not readily available, use an alcohol-based hand sanitizer with at least 60% alcohol. Always wash hands with soap and water if hands are visibly dirty;
  • Cover your mouth with tissues whenever you sneeze, and discard used tissues in the trash.
  • Cough into your elbow.
  • Avoid close contact with people who are sick with respiratory symptoms.
  • Clean frequently touched surfaces.
  • Avoid touching your eyes, nose, and mouth if at all possible.
  • Do not shake hands.

For further information, please visit the CDC website.
