St. Cloud Mayor Nathan Blackwell reminded city residents that City Hall will be closed for two weeks to the public to lower the risk of COVID-19 exposure, but critical city operations and essential services will continue.

A citizens’ employee hotline — 407-957-7161 — will be available seven days a week from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m.

“We’re in this together, and together we will get through this as a community. We are St. Cloud strong,” Blackwell said. “We know this is an incredibly difficult time, bu the people in this community are just amazing. We encourage you to be patient, use common sense … and wash your hands.”
