Press Release - Message from Mayor - COVID 19

City of Camdenton Press Release
April 1, 2020

As our community continues to work together to avoid the further spread of the Corona COVID 19 virus, I would urge you to educate yourself about the virus and to always err on the side of caution when thinking about your daily activities.

Remember the phrase ONE CART, ONE PERSON when visiting the grocery stores and other essential businesses. We, as fellow citizens, need to be mindful of the number of people and the number of times per day we are visiting these essential businesses.  Every customer who walks in their doors PUTS THOSE WORKERS AND OTHERS AT RISK. Go to these businesses with a sense of purpose, get what you need, and get yourselves HOME.  If you have small children and cannot leave them at home, please consider using the option of pick up. 

The City of Camdenton supports the order issued by the Camden County Health Department and the County Commissioners on March 31, 2020 and urges all businesses to comply as follows:

  1. All public and private gatherings, planned or spontaneous; recreational facilities, conference, event and banquet facilities, wedding venues, gyms, social clubs, funerals,  churches or any other place of public or private gathering, shall limit participants to 10 people provided they can maintain the appropriate 6 ft distance between participants This is meant to include employees and clergy in the count of 10 people.
  2.  There will be no dining or drinking allowed inside Food or Beverage establishments or their patios or lawns.  Use of curb-side service, pick up, or drive thru service is allowed. Patrons are asked to leave the establishment as soon as their order is received. 
  3. Due to being unable to maintain the 6 ft social distancing order between the provider and the customer; nail salons, hair salons, tattoo parlors, massage therapists, estheticians, spas or any other personal service provider will cease to provide their services.
  4. Schools shall remain closed, but allowed to continue to provide nutrition services to the families they serve
  5. Any additional directives from President Trump or Governor Parson will be incorporated into this order.
  6. These directives do not apply to Essential Governmental Proceedings, Day Care facilities, or Food Stores, however, Social Distancing practices and thorough cleaning and disinfection practices are to be maintained at all times.

Businesses found to be non-compliant may be subject to suspension of their operating permit due to creating an imminent health hazard. 

The City will continue with all staff and have instituted several social distancing measures to avoid contact between employees.

As Mayor, I urge you to follow all health recommendations, adjust your daily routines to avoid unnecessary contact with others, and continue to keep up with the ever-changing news about this pandemic. Finally, I wish the best for all of our community as we work together to lessen the impact of this virus on our community.

Best wishes and good health,
John McNabb
Mayor City of Camdenton

Message from the Mayor

As our community works together to avoid the spread of the Corona COVID 19 virus, I would urge you to educate yourself about the virus and to always err on the side of caution when thinking about your daily activities. The City is encouraging diners to continue patronizing our local restaurants through carryout, curbside and delivery services and remember to tip.

The Health Departments and the CDC have established basic guidelines to follow to prevent the spread of this virus. We urge you to:

  1. Wash your hands often for at least 20 seconds, use hand sanitizers when washing hands is not possible.
  2. Cover when coughing or sneezing.
  3. Sanitize work areas, doorknobs, and food preparation areas often.
  4. Maintain a minimum 6-foot radius between yourself and others.

Under the 15 Days to Slow the Spread Campaign, President Trump and his health advisory team is recommending that everyone limit interaction with others and avoid gatherings of 10 or more people.

As Mayor, the health and safety of our citizens is of highest priority. We have made several changes regarding City business to reduce risks and decrease the chances of spreading the virus:

  1. Citizens are asked to avoid coming to City Hall if possible. You can use the drop box in front of City Hall to pay water and sewer bills. You can also pay online, by mail, or by phone. The $2 dollar fee on credit card usage is being waived until the end of April and may be extended.
  2. We have increased efforts to sanitize all areas of City buildings.
  3. Public Works crews have adjusted break and lunch times so fewer employees gather at any one time, and those areas are sanitized after each use.
  4. Police staff who have contact with the public are sanitizing equipment and work areas after each contact to protect themselves and the public.
  5. The Board of Alderman has closed the Park at this time to ensure compliance with the gathering of 10 or less people.

The City will continue with all staff and their availability to deal with any and all emergencies, you may contact us by phone at 346-3600.

As Mayor, I urge you to follow all health recommendations, adjust your daily routines to avoid unnecessary contact with others, and continue to keep up with the ever-changing news about this pandemic. Finally, I wish the best for all of our community as we work together to lessen the impact of this virus on our community.
