STATEMENT ON COVID-19
The City of Cleveland is absolutely committed to the welfare and safety of its citizens. Therefore, we are closely monitoring the coronavirus (COVID-19) situation, including guidance from the Centers for Disease Control (CDC), the World Health Organization (WHO), and other health authorities.
City officials, including those from fire and police departments, recently met with officials from the Bolivar Medical Center to better understand the local impact of the novel coronavirus to help us determine how best to serve our community. In addition, our first responders have been briefed on the symptoms of the virus and best practices on how to safeguard all citizens from being affected by COVID-19.
The Bolivar Medical Center is encouraging our citizens to visit their website at https://www.bolivarmedical.com/coronavirus-covid-19-preparedness-information.
This website provides links to the Center for Disease Control and the Mississippi State Department of Health which are updated regularly with information. In addition, we encourage citizens to contact the Mississippi Coronavirus Hotline at 877-978-6453.
In an effort to mitigate the spread of COVID-19, the City of Cleveland will be following the environmental cleaning and disinfection recommendations of the CDC in all City facilities. We also urge citizens to comply with the CDC’s recommendation to avoid attending in-person events consisting of 50 people or more.
We will post updates to our website at www.cityofclevelandms.com as they become available. Should you need further assistance, please contact City Hall at 662-846-1471. Please know that we are here to help, and we will inform the public should we receive any information requiring specific action by our citizens. May God Bless our country, state and city.
Billy Nowell, Mayor
