Message from Mayor & City Manager regarding COVID-19
Dear Louisville Residents,
The last week has been a whirlwind. Folks have been flooded with news reports, press conferences, emails and statistics about COVID-19. We would like to take a minute to focus on something positive; the resiliency of the Louisville community. In the midst of growing concerns over public health and safety, we are reminded that our residents and employees are what make the city so special.
Residents continue to express concern for one another and make sure their neighbors and other members of the community are properly taken care of. We have heard from many individuals at the City asking what they can do to help. Additionally, many City employees have worked around-the-clock to provide core services and plan for potential emergency scenarios. We have also seen a number of employees at local stores working hard to stock groceries for our families and maintain other routine aspects of our lives.
We would like to say thank you to the Louisville community. It is evident that we are in this together as we continue to support one another during this difficult time. It can be scary to read that the City has closed facilities and declared a local disaster emergency. We would like to reassure you that the health and well-being of the community is our top priority and we are committed to helping slow the spread of COVID-19 through these types of measures. We hope that the closure is only for a short period of time and we will reopen soon.
The City has been actively monitoring the situation and will continue to do so. The City’s website (https://www.louisvilleco.gov/residents/coronavirus-update) is updated daily to provide important links to information on the situation. We are in close contact with agency partners like Boulder County Public Health, the Boulder Office of Emergency Management and the Colorado Department of Public Health and Environment and consistently receiving new information that we will share with the public.
Thanks again for taking the time to read this information and stay up-to-date. If you have questions, please do not hesitate to reach out to City Council or staff with your concerns or needs. Also please sign up for eNotifications at https://www.louisvilleco.gov/residents/enotification and the City’s monthly eNewsletter at https://www.louisvilleco.gov/newsletter. By staying calm, practicing patience and through acts of kindness, we will get through this!
Ashley Stolzmann, Mayor
Heather Balser, City Manager
