The City of Prescott has announced that members of the administrative staff have tested positive for COVID-19. The employees are all isolating at home and exhibiting minor symptoms.
The City is working on a revised service policy for City Hall, which will include closing City Hall until further notice, and closing City meetings to in-person attendance, by both board and commission members, and the public, essentially running all meetings via Zoom only. More details will be announced about City operations in a future press release.
To date, a total of 15 City employees have tested positive since March. On Friday, November 19, the City conducted COVID testing for employees and their families through Spectrum Healthcare. Test results from this round of testing have not come back. Spectrum is telling the City that due to the surge, results may take 4-7 days.
