On March 19, a Decatur City Hall employee notified management that they had tested positive for COVID-19. The employee is in an administrative position and typically has limited interactions with the public.

Wednesday, March 11 was the last day that the employee was at work, and the employee did not begin experiencing symptoms until after that time. As outlined in the City’s Pandemic Preparedness and Response Plan, the City has notified individuals with direct contact with the employee and directed them to self-quarantine and/or self-monitor. In addition, the affected workspaces and common areas have been disinfected and sanitized, and the employee has been placed on leave until cleared by a physician to return to work.

“City staff have taken all necessary precautions to protect the public and employees in this situation.  They have followed our pandemic plan and adhered to guidance from the CDC.  Our thoughts and prayers go out to our employee and we wish for a quick recovery,” Mayor Patti Garrett said.
