On April 28, the Coppell City Council voted to amend the Declaration of a State of Emergency to align with Governor Abbott's Executive Orders and Dallas County's amended Orders. Unless otherwise specified, the amended Orders will remain in place through 11:59 p.m. on May 18, 2020.
Under the amended Declaration, in accordance with Dallas County and the Governor's Office, the direction to stay in home is still in place. Under the Order, however, residents can visit essential services as before, but they can also now patronize "re-opened" businesses, including restaurants and retail operations. In accordance with Dallas County's Order, residents are still required to wear a cloth face mask when in public. In every instance the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) guidelines are to be followed. Hand washing and social distancing are still important measures to slow the spread of the virus and must be observed.
Until further notice, City of Coppell facilities will remain closed to the public. The City will continue to focus on virtual services for residents. The City is working to expand virtual services, and virtual inspections and limited curbside pick-up at the library will be offered beginning Monday, May 4.
The City of Coppell is committed to providing continuity of government services for Coppell residents while helping ensure residents and City of Coppell employees stay safe. The City is working to ensure that necessary cleaning supplies are on hand and that all employees and residents will remain safe once the doors open to the public once again.
"As your local government, we never closed. We never will close," said City Manager Mike Land. "City operations continue. Things may look a little bit different for a little while longer, but staff is still working diligently to ensure that the needs of our residents are being met. Facilities are staffed, but we are practicing social distancing. Many of our employees are working remotely. If you call us, we will answer (or give you a call back in a reasonable timeframe). If you need us, we will be there. Many of our services are accessible online, and we are here to assist you in any way that we can. We are committed to protecting the health of our residents and employees. This situation does not change that. If anything, it has made us more dedicated. We appreciate everyone's patience as we work through the dynamics of this situation."
Emergency services are uninterrupted. The Coppell Police, Fire, and Public Works Departments are staffed and have protocols in place to protect first responders so they can continue to serve the community.
COVID-19 has proven to spread person-to-person and adhere to surfaces for a prolonged period of time. These Orders are necessary to protect the lives, health, welfare and safety of the Coppell community. All closures and impacts are subject to change as circumstances warrant.
All City of Coppell facilities, with the exception of the Coppell Justice Center, which is to remain open in case of emergency, are closed to the public until further notice.
This is a rapidly evolving situation, and updates will be made as new information becomes available. The City of Coppell is working closely with community partners, including Coppell ISD, to keep the community informed.
