Coronavirus (COVID-19) Update March 13, 2020

As Coronavirus (COVID-19) continues to be a topic of concern, we would like to share some of the things City staff are doing in an effort to limit the potential spread of the outbreak and be prepared in the event that there are confirmed cases in or near Springtown.

The health and safety of our citizens is always our top priority. Currently there are no presumptive or confirmed cases of COVID-19 in the City of Springtown or in Parker County and the immediate risk to our City remains low.

Our team at the City has met and developed a plan of action for our response in the event that cases of COVID-19 occur in or near Springtown, and we continue to monitor the situation on a day-to-day basis. We are working together as a City with local and state agencies to ensure the health and safety of our citizens. Additionally, we have taken steps to protect our staff and visitors to our facilities from further spread of the illness. These steps include more frequent disinfection of common areas and workstations.

To aid us in these efforts, and to better protect our residents as well as our staff, we respectfully ask those who are experiencing symptoms of COVID-19 to conduct as much business with the City over the phone or online. Utility bills and certain court payments can be made through our website. Should you have another urgent matter that needs to be addressed, please contact City Hall (817) 220-4834 and we will do our best to make accommodations for those who should not visit City Hall in person because they experiencing COVID-19 symptoms.

We will continue to partner with the Parker County Office of Emergency Services in a joint effort to slow the spread of COVID-19. In addition to working with other local agencies, City staff as well as Mayor Greg Hood have been in contact with state entities and officials.

If additional precautions are necessary, we will communicate those to our residents as soon as possible, including the status of any City-sponsored events.
