May 4, 2020 – Following the announcement of Governor Holcomb’s roadmap to reopen Indiana, and the Clinton County Commissioners decision to lift the Clinton County Travel Advisory, Mayor Judy Sheets announced that several city departments will begin plans to loosen Covid-19-related restrictions but says,
“This does not mean people should act as though the danger of contracting Covid-19 has passed. Residents should continue practicing social distancing, wear masks, and frequently wash their hands in order to prevent an increase in cases.”
The mayor said having 17 new Covid-19 cases reported in Clinton County between May 2 and May 4,
“is very concerning to us. We want to make sure that any action taken by the city to reduce restrictions is balanced with caution and awareness that increasing personal interactions between employees and the public could result in an increase in cases of Covid-19.”
Starting today, Frankfort Street Department will resume bulk item drop-off and collection. Recycling items, excluding glass, can also be dropped off at the Street Department.
