[ARCHIVED] Palmdale City Hall Remains Open by Appointment Only; Facial Coverings Required

Palmdale City Hall remains open by appointment only under the new Los Angeles County Department of Health Officer Order which has extended “Safer at Home” provisions through May 15.

The new Order also requires essential businesses, including the City of Palmdale, to provide a cloth face covering for all of their employees to wear while performing duties that involve contact with other employees and the public, and to post their physical distancing plans. The public is also required to wear a face covering to enter essential businesses. These measures take effect at midnight April 15.

“The experts are telling us that social distancing is having a positive impact, so we’re encouraging everyone to keep up the good work and take the next steps in this fight against the coronavirus,” said Palmdale City Manager J.J. Murphy. “Face coverings will be required at Palmdale City Hall and all essential businesses according to the new Order. Palmdale cares about the health and wellness of the public and our employees. We stand ready to continue to work with our partners for you.”

“Our medical providers have informed us that they are in need of the N95 respirators, and  the CDC also recommends that those masks be used for the health care workers and medical providers, so we’re asking everyone to either make your own face covering or simply use a bandana,” said Palmdale Mayor Steve Hofbauer. “They’re fairly easy to make and there are a lot of resources online that will give you step by step instructions on how to make one.”
