Link to PDF Press Release

Due to the unprecedented circumstances of Covid-19, Cedar City will implement the following changes to City services per the Governor’s recommendation to keep gatherings to under 100 people to allow for social distancing. We would like to remind residents that most City business can be conducted over the phone, on the website or via email.  Please try these options before coming to City Hall.

Please note the following changes and closures:

PUBLIC MEETINGS

We will still hold Cedar City Council on this Wed, March 18, 2020, at 5:30 PM. We encourage citizens to watch the meeting live on our YouTube channel at https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCvv1r4z0JQJjAIgeLmMGmbA

Any questions for City Council Meeting can be sent to Administration by using this form at: https://www.cedarcity.org/FormCenter/Administration-3/General-Inquiry-Request-for-Service-Comp-36

Currently, the public is welcome to attend public meetings in person.  

As the Covid-19 situation evolves, we will notify the public to any changes to public meetings on our website: www.cedarcity.org and on our Facebook page: @cedarcitycorp

CEDAR CITY LIBRARY

Cedar City Library will be closed as of Wednesday, March 18th, 2020.  At this time, we are unable to waive fines.  If you need to return books, please drop them off at our book drop on the North side of the building.  We apologize for any inconvenience this causes.  You can also renew items by calling us at 435-586-6661 or emailing us at ereference@cedarcity.org.

Exercising an abundance of caution and in conformity with the suggestions of government leaders and many in the medical community, the Cedar City Library will experience a temporary closure effective after the end of business sanitizing, painting, and general building maintenance. Certain enhancements to our catalog and the way material is located will be implemented. Capitalizing on a period of low attendance as well as a time that calls for cautious and prudent behavior ensures that this closure will impact the fewest number of patrons. Please take advantage of our eBook and eAudio resources, databases, and other online resources. We will make daily updates to social media. Thank you for your patronage.

Steve Decker, Library Director.

Cedar City Covid-19 Letter

Mayor Wilson-Edwards

Posted on  3/12/2020


Dear Cedar City Residents,

Yesterday, I was part of a local intergovernmental task force related to coronavirus preparedness in our area and I wanted to provide you with an update.

Here in Cedar City, our primary role during the coronavirus outbreak is to support the local, county, state and federal agencies directly tasked with managing and communicating to the public regarding the Coronavirus outbreak.

As our City continues to work with various different agencies I want you to know we will provide you with updated, accurate information as it becomes available. This is not a time to panic and let fear take over but to continue using good hygienic practices of washing our hands, using hand sanitizer, not touching our faces, sneezing and coughing into tissues and staying home if we don’t feel good. 

For the most update information from the Southwest Utah Public Health Department please visit coronavirus.utah.gov or swuhealth.org/covid.

Mayor Wilson-Edwards
