Re: Novel Coronavirus (COVID-19

Due to the recent concerns leading to a public health emergency declared as a result of the pandemic outbreak of the novel coronavirus (COVID-19) on March 12, 2020 Governor Bill Lee issued executive order number 14 instituting emergency measures aimed to prevent and contain the spread of the COVID 19 Virus. Due to concerns for the safety and welfare of our employees, their families and the public. City staff has been broken into two different categories which are non-essential and critical need

Non-essential employees are: City Hall, Streets department, Water distribution, Sewer collections, and Library

Critical need employees are: Police department, Fire department, Water treatment plant, and Waste water treatment plant

As of now the plan to stop the spread of the COVID 19 virus going forward is to have all non essential employees that makes up the Streets department, Water distribution, Sewer collections, and Library to-be sent home to reduce the risk of the entire staff being infected. They are required to be available as needed when called. And the on-call system will be implemented

Its employees they will go to a Monday and Friday schedule (only). With Tuesday, Wednesday, Thursday working from home. In addition, they are required to be available by phone and in person as needed

The critical need facilities i.e. the Water treatment plant and Waste water treatment plant will continue with their normal shifts and schedules

This is an ongoing and continually changing situation. I will continue to update and inform as we know more. Please be safe and protect yourself and your loved ones during this ever changing situation

If you have any questions please feel free to contact me at 865-437-7722

Sincerely

Thomas McCormick Oliver Springs/City Manager 865-435-7722 office 865-435-4881 fax
