The health, safety, and well-being of our community are our top priorities.  The City’s Emergency Management team is coordinating with and following the guidance of the Georgia Department of Public Health (DPH), DeKalb Emergency Management Agency (DEMA), and the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC).  While essential public services such as Police, Fire, and Public Works are continuing normal operations, certain community events, meetings, and programs are being cancelled and/or rescheduled in order to prevent the spread of COVID-19. The City’s after-school programs have been cancelled pending the status of City Schools of Decatur, and Active Living programs at Decatur Recreation Center and Ebster Gym have been suspended until future notice. Updates can be found at decaturga.com as they become available.

For a comprehensive list of community events cancellations, visit the City’s calendar of events at https://www.decaturga.com/calendar.

Other actions that we are taking to protect the ongoing health and well-being of all our community members include:

  • Twice daily cleanings of all city facilities and equipment. Soap and sanitizing gel are available for public use at offices and facilities.
  • Reinforcing CDC disease prevention guidelines and best hygiene practices in all city facilities. Anyone with recent international travel to target areas or with symptoms of illness is encouraged to remain at home.
  • Closely monitoring guidance from the CDC and state health officials and adjusting our plans as needed.
  • Updating continuity procedures for all areas of city service and preparing to implement these procedures should regular operations be disrupted.

As additional information and guidance become available, we will keep you informed as to any changes affecting city services.

Thank you for your continued support and know we are focused on maintaining normal operations with a keen focus on the health and safety of all, while ensuring that we deliver great city services.
