Coronavirus (COVID-19)

March 16, 2020

 To those who need to access City of Hamilton services,

 Many of you have been following the news and watching as COVID-19 has started to spread throughout our region.  While there are no confirmed cases yet in Ravalli County, these extraordinary times call for us to follow public health recommendations to mitigate the spread of the virus as much as possible. 

 At this time your governing officials request the following recommendations be implemented immediately:

 If you are sick, please stay home and do not come to public buildings. This is the best way to keep others healthy.  Please contact the appropriate office by phone or email (contact information available at www.cityofhamilton.net) and accommodations will be made to allow you to conduct your necessary business from your home or at a later time once you feel better.

  1. If you or any member of your family has experienced a fever – stay home and do not come to public buildings until you have been fever-free, without medication, for 72 hours. Likewise, if you or your family members are experiencing cough, chills, body aches and other flu-like symptoms, please stay home.
  2. Prevention efforts for individuals visiting public buildings include increased focus on hand-washing, covering coughs and sneezes with the crook of your elbow or disposable tissue that is then thrown away, and avoiding contact with your face.
  3. We have also increased our focus on cleaning and disinfecting objects and surfaces in public buildings.
  4. Based on current public health recommendations, we will be postponing any meetings that are anticipated to be attended by more than 10 people.  If you have questions about whether a scheduled meeting will be held, please feel free to call the appropriate office to confirm before attending.
  5. We will be following any further Federal, State and Ravalli County Public Health Department recommendations as they are released. 

 We encourage citizens to follow public health guidelines for social distancing as a strategy to reduce and slow the spread of COVID-19 to high-risk populations, including the elderly and those with autoimmune and respiratory conditions. 

 Please feel free to communicate with us as needed and we will continue to offer updated information and support in any way possible to those with questions.

 Thank you for your patience and understanding.

 Dominic Farrenkopf, Mayor

 City of Hamilton
