Gettysburg Borough continues to monitor updates from the Centers for Disease Control, World Health Organization, the U.S. Department of State, the Pennsylvania Department of Health, and the Adams County Emergency Management Agency regarding the status of the Coronavirus (COVID-19).
The Borough utilizes continuity of operations plans should staff members and/or police officers not be able to report to work due to optional/mandatory quarantine protocols.
While a quarantine would impact some Borough services, many will be able to continue due to the Borough’s Information Technology (IT) infrastructure – where all administrative staff is electronically accessible via the Borough website.
Staff have the capability to work remotely if quarantined and assist residents via electronic means. Permits, meeting agendas, payroll, financial management, etc. would continue.
Sign up for Borough Urgent/Emergency Alerts & Announcements under URGENT ALERTS on the Borough’s Homepage at www.GettysburgPA.gov for the latest news.
Remember, practicing these three simple preventive actions will help prevent the spread of this respiratory virus:
(1) Avoid close contact with people who are sick;
(2) Avoid touching your eyes, nose, and mouth with unwashed hands; and
(3) Wash your hands often with soap and water for at least 20 seconds. (Use an alcohol-based hand sanitizer that contains at least 60% alcohol if soap/water are not available.)
