The City of Coralville has been preparing to meet the COVID-19 challenge on a variety of fronts. City officials have been in regular communication with partners and key stakeholders through the activation of the Johnson County Emergency Operations Center. The City and other local governments, state agencies, area school districts, and other organizations are continuing to keep each other apprised of planning and preparation efforts, and are identifying ways to assist each other as this situation develops.
In addition to encouraging residents and businesses to utilize trusted sources of public health information, such as the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention and the Iowa Department of Public Health, the City is planning and preparing for how COVID-19 may impact City employees and services.
The City has enhanced basic precautions taken by employees throughout the City organization, such as increased hand washing, sanitizing of surfaces, and staying home if sick. Residents are encouraged to conduct city business with reduced interpersonal contact when possible; many payments and other services can be completed via www.coralville.org.
City staff has a great deal of training, experience, and resources to handle incidents of many different types, and will continue to evaluate the best ways possible to provide essential City services with minimal disruption and protect the health of City employees as this situation develops.
