CLARKSVILLE, Tenn. – Beginning Monday, March 30, all City Hall employees and visitors will report to the Loss Prevention desk on the main floor for a health screening. Screening is only required once for those who go in and out of City Hall throughout the day.
The process will include taking a person’s temperature with a "no contact" handheld temperature gun and answering several questions regarding that person’s health and recent interactions with people who may have COVID-19.
“We are taking these extra steps to further protect our employees and visitors that still have to conduct business in City Hall,” Mayor Joe Pitts said. “Maintaining a safe environment for everyone is our number one priority.”
This is just one of several steps the City is taking to help prevent the spread of COVID-19. Clarksville Gas & Water and CDE Lightband have closed public lobbies, Clarksville Transit System has suspended fare collections and Clarksville Parks & Recreation has closed community centers and postponed or cancelled events.
All members of the public and businesses are strongly encouraged to follow and comply with guidance and directives issued by the federal Centers for Disease Control and state and local departments of health. The CDC has updated information and guidance available online here. The Tennessee Department of Health has additional information available here.
All City Hall employees and visitors will be required to check in at the Loss Prevention desk for a health screening upon their initial entry to the building. The screening will include a temperature check, taken with a "no contact" handheld temperature gun, and a series of questions.
