Dear Residents of Cottonwood Heights,


Following the March 12 announcement and recommendation from Governor Gary R. Herbert, we want to reassure you that Cottonwood Heights has emergency management policies and procedures in place to address the coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic. The City Administrative Staff and Council Members are prepared to take necessary actions towards maintaining daily operations with priority on public safety.

As the events of the next few weeks unfold, we want to emphasize that we do not anticipate any interruption of city services, although some might need to be altered in the way we provide them. Cottonwood Heights Police and Unified Fire have always kept public safety as their top priority, and that will never change. Our Police department will continue to be proactive in responding to calls and addressing the needs of our residents.

We highly encourage you to work with us via email or telephone. Our staff is available via email and telephone during business hours and our police department is on duty 24 hours a day. If you feel that you need to meet in person, we encourage precautionary measures such as keeping a safe distance of at least six feet from others.

We ask that each of our residents and visitors respect our efforts and follow the hygiene recommendations listed below to combat this and many other viral threats. It is of paramount importance that citizens be educated and proactive in measures that can slow the spread of COVID19 in our community. Key public prevention measures include:

  • Wash your hands often with soap and water or alcohol-based hand rub
  • Avoid close contact with anyone who is experiencing flu-like symptoms
  • Cover your mouth when coughing or sneezing
  • Avoid touching your mouth, nose, and eyes
  • If you are experiencing symptoms, stay home

We recommend and encourage residents to opt out of attending large mass gatherings. As a city we have made the determination to postpone mass gatherings and most public functions. We additionally encourage residents to practice social distancing to reduce the potential spreading of the virus.

It is critically important that residents use 911 for emergencies only. If you develop a cough, fever, or difficulty breathing and have traveled recently with a widespread outbreak of COVID-19, you should consult traveler’s guidance information from the Centers for Disease (CDC). This content is regularly monitored and updated. As always, you should consult your primary care provider or local clinic directly with questions regarding your own health.

If you have questions about COVID-19 the Utah Department of Health has established a hotline at 1-800-456-7707 and has information on their website coronavirus.utah.gov. Additionally, the experts at the Salt Lake County Health Department have asked that community members reference www.cdc.gov for information.

We can assure you that we will continue to respond to your emergencies and will conduct daily operations for our residents and businesses.

 

Cottonwood Heights City is committed to the community and response during the COVID-19 outbreak.

Respectfully yours,

Mike Peterson

Mayor Mike Peterson
