The following information was presented to the City Commission on Monday, March 9, 2020, by City Manager John Regan:
As we continue to monitor the development of Coronavirus, Fire Chief Carlos Aviles, our Emergency Manager, and Melissa Wissel, Communications Manager are following closely with state and local agencies and attending meetings frequently.
Collaborative communication is ongoing with all key partners including the Florida Department of Health as the lead agency, Flagler Health+, the St. Johns County School District, St. Johns County Emergency Management and Medical Services, the City of St. Augustine, and the City of St. Augustine Beach. In addition, all emergency management plans are being reviewed and updated as necessary.
Most of what we are doing is an enhanced protocol of our existing practices and procedures:
What does this mean to you, our community of residents, business owners and stakeholders? We are asking that you take the necessary precautions to responsibly protect yourself:
While there are confirmed positive cases in Florida, the majority of reported respiratory illnesses are not Coronavirus. Should there be a confirmed case of Coronavirus in our county, local health officials will provide guidance for any necessary response. St. Johns County has an emergency management plan in place and is confident in local first responders and the medical community’s ability to respond to the virus, should the need arise.
