Marina, CA. – Mayor Delgado and City Manager Layne Long announced actions to further the City’s COVID-19 public safety response, implementing citywide service changes and signing a proclamation of emergency. The goals of these service changes are to slow the spread of COVID-19 in our community and limit exposure to our highest risk community members while maintaining a high level of support for the community and continuing essential City services.
Despite having no confirmed cases of coronavirus in Monterey County to date, scientists and medical experts report that slowing the spread (also known as “flattening the curve”) of COVID-19 by reducing opportunities for transmission will save lives by giving police and fire personnel, hospitals, doctors, and vaccine-manufacturers time to respond and prepare for the outbreak.
“The safety of our community remains our priority. Now – more than ever – we need to work together to help slow the transmission of COVID-19. We have an amazing community of resilient, caring and compassionate people, and together we will successfully navigate this situation. We are all in this together, and together we will make it through this,” said Mayor Bruce Delgado.
Implementing Service Changes to slow the spread of COVID-19
Several service changes are implemented as of today or are going into effect on Saturday, March 14, 2020 and last through at least March 31, 2020.
