Date of release: December 10, 2020
Paducah’s City Hall located at 300 South 5th Street and other City buildings will continue to be closed to the public through the end of December. The City is monitoring the status of COVID-19 in McCracken County. If the County falls out of the red zone or if the number of cases is trending downward, the plan is to reopen City Hall and other buildings to the public on Monday, January 4.
City Manager Jim Arndt said, “By keeping the City facilities closed to the public, we seek to keep our employees who are working in the facilities and the public safe and healthy. The City’s team of employees has been maintaining service delivery through virtual meetings, phone calls, emails, and online. Our citizens and employees are at the forefront of our operations. Thankfully, we are still able to provide exceptional customer service even with the absence of in-person visits to our buildings.”
In addition to City Hall, City of Paducah facilities including the lobby of the Paducah Police Department, fire stations, Public Works Department lobby, and the Parks & Recreation Department offices are closed to the public. These facilities have been closed to the public since November 20 based upon the directives in Kentucky Governor Andy Beshear’s Executive Order 2020-068.
Arndt adds, “Please continue all of your efforts to slow the spread of the virus. Be thoughtful about how you hold holiday gatherings. Protect each other by wearing masks, washing our hands, and maintaining appropriate distance. With vaccine distribution expected over the next few weeks and months, this is not the time to relax our efforts to control the virus.”
City of Paducah holidays are December 24, 25, 31, and January 1.
