Mayoral Statement Regarding COVID-19 (Coronavirus)

City of Frankfort leaders and employees are focused on keeping our residents, employees, and their families safe and healthy. Our departments are working hard to keep our buildings clean and keep business running as usual. We have taken extra precautions such as disinfecting high traffic areas and creating sanitation stations. We are following guidance from federal, and state agencies, including the CDC and the Clinton County Health Department. As we continue to monitor the rapidly evolving situation we have no plans at this time to limit city services or change our operating hours.

Here are the steps we’re taking:

To protect visitors to our buildings:

  • Cleaning commonly used areas frequently.
  • Sanitizing restrooms more frequently and restocking with supplies, including soap, paper towels, and hand sanitizer.
  • Adding sanitation stations in Old Stoney

For our employees

  • Encouraging all department staff to closely monitor their health and well-being.
  • Providing hand sanitizer and tissues.
  • Asking our employees to stay home if they, or someone in their household, are sick.

For our citizens

  • Encouraging our Frankfort residents to follow the CDC’s suggested hygiene practices to reduce the spread of the virus.
  • Individuals over 60 years of age or those with a known underlying health issue such as cardiovascular disease, diabetes or chronic respiratory disease should limit their public exposure.
  • Recommending that all citizens practice social distancing and avoid non-essential gatherings.

We are here for our community and we are confident the City of Frankfort will be ready for a safe and effective response as the situation develops.

Judith E. Sheets, Mayor
