Mayor Frank G. Jackson has recently announced that Cleveland will lift its Proclamation of Civil Emergency. The mayor made the proclamation to mitigate the spread of the Covid-19 during the early onset of the pandemic.
The reason behind the decision is the decrease in Covid-19 cases for the past four weeks. The Cleveland Department of Public Health reported 795 new Covid-19 cases in the past two weeks or 198.5 new cases per 100,000 people in the City of Cleveland.
“Despite the ongoing decline in new Covid-19 cases, the city will continue to closely monitor Covid-19 data,” said Mayor Frank G. Jackson. “If new cases, hospitalizations and/or deaths begin to rise, we will revisit the decision to reopen. We must continue to be vigilant and use the measures we know have been effective – get your vaccine, wash your hands and social distance. The pandemic is not over.”
The withdrawal of the proclamation’s highlights are:
- All employees may start to work onsite on their core hours no later than June 14.
- City Hall will start to open to the public starting June 6.
- Enhanced security requirements should be applied in public areas, halls, and buildings.
- The use of badges that provides information of visitors’ destination within the building.
- All building visitors are subject to temperature screening or self-assessments.
- Health protocols signage and information will be available throughout the building.
- Visitors must practice social distancing, proper handwashing and sanitizing, and the use of facial coverings.
In addition, the security department of the building or area should control the maximum capacity determined by each of the building’s departments and apply restrictions when needed. This directive applies to the City Hall and city buildings following the end of the proclamation.
