City Manager's Update | COVID-19 Update | July 22, 2020

Post Date:07/22/2020 3:43 PM

Hello Monrovians,  

In order for the City of Monrovia to allow expanded outdoor dining to occur, we must certify that Safer at Work and in the Community protocols are followed, masks are worn, and physical distancing is practiced. If our business owners, residents and patrons cannot adhere to the guidelines, the pilot program will have to end.

We need your help to make this successful. 

All visitors MUST wear a mask when not eating and drinking. This includes those walking in the street or waiting for a table. 

All alcohol MUST be consumed at the dining table. At no time should customers walk in the street with an alcohol beverage.

You must be seated six-feet apart from other parties. To keep those around you safe, outdoor dining table will be placed six-feet apart. Additionally, aisles will remain open to provide space for those walking in the street to move freely between the various expanded spaces. 

Thank you to every community member who continues to support Monrovia businesses! 


High-Risk Amenities at Monrovia Parks Remain Closed

The Safer at Work and in the Community Health Officer Order continues to prohibit recreation facilities and activities where more frequent and prolonged person-to-person contacts are likely to occur. 

To ensure the well-being of our community, all outdoor recreation facilities remains closed. This includes:

  • Playgrounds 
  • Basketball Courts 
  • Sport Fields

Furthermore, organized sports of any kind are not permitted in the open space of the park.

Cloth Face Coverings are Required 

Even without symptoms, you can expose others to COVID-19. Wear a mask to slow the spread. When you are leaving your home, carry a face covering with you. When you are leaving your home, carry a face covering with you. A clean face covering should be worn anytime you are in contact with other people who are not a part of your household in public or private spaces.

Cloth face coverings increases prevention of spreading respiratory droplets when talking, sneezing, or coughing. If everyone wears a cloth face covering when out in public, such as visiting a business, the risk of exposure to COVID-19 can be reduced for the entire community. 

In addition to wearing a cloth face covering when you leave your home, be sure to continue to practice physical distancing and wash your hands often.
