Governor Whitmer’s announcement Sunday has prompted the City of Warren to take immediate action to help reverse the record number of cases and deaths in Michigan. Effective this Wednesday, all departments in the city will reactivate the remote work plans beginning on Wednesday. Mayor Fouts had ordered these plans into effect earlier this year. Most employees* will be working from home and those that work inside will be required to wear a mask, social distance, and sanitize while at city hall. City Hall will be closed to the public until further notice. Warren has been at the forefront of successfully combating COVID-19 and Mayor Fouts intends to keep us in a leadership position to protect our employees and the community while continuing to deliver effective city services to our residents. All hands-on deck meaning that all of us need to follow the simple protocol of masks, sanitizing and social distancing. Masks are to protect others and yourself with a recent study indicating it’s the single most important factor to stop the spread of this virus.
*We are requiring most employees to work from home unless they are absolutely needed at city hall.
