City of Colleyville's Declaration of Disaster 

Following the direction of Governor Abbott, Mayor Newton signed a formal Declaration of Disaster for the City of Colleyville. Mirroring the Governor’s Executive Order, the declaration will take effect at 11:59 PM on 3/20/20. Most notably, the declaration limits the size of gatherings to not more than 10 people; limits health clubs, massage establishments, and salons to over-the-counter retail sales; closes theaters; reduces occupancy of commercial buildings and houses of worship; and requires all restaurants to provide take-out, drive-through, or curbside pickup only. It is important to note that the declaration allows for the continuation of grocery stores, pharmacies, medical facilities, and daycare facilities. This latter group was specifically identified by the governor as “critical infrastructure.”

UPDATE - 3/13/2020

City officials meet daily to discuss response to the Coronavirus pandemic and how it will effect City services. The City is following guidance of the CDC, Tarrant County Health, and other emergency management officials in our response. We have plans in place to provide continuity of government, although how you interact with the City will change for a period of time. We have two phases currently in place: (1) Actions Taken to Date and (2) Next Stage Actions we will take when the need arises. While we do not have a definitive date for Next State Actions, we believe these could be implemented as early as next week.

Action Taken to Date:   

  • All Library programs are now cancelled until further notice
  • All Parks and Recreation programming is cancelled until further notice
  • Citizens Police Academy suspended until further notice
  • Bunny Brunch event is canceled. Refunds will be issued in the coming weeks
  • Municipal Judge has suspended all court action April 1
  • Additional cleaning of all touch points throughout municipal buildings (i.e. door knobs, stair case rails, elevator buttons)
  • Preparation of response kits for first responders (masks, goggles, Tyvek suits, hand sanitizer)
  • 911 dispatch protocol to include screening questions
  • Initiated first responder protocol policies to keep first responders safe and in action
  • Hand sanitizers and department discussion of separation techniques/social distancing
  • Encourage electronic communication/business with the City (i.e. payment of water bill) 

Next Stage Actions (when necessitated):

  • Require all water bills/building permits to be processed on-line. Fees will be waived
  • Close City Hall, Senior Center, Colleyville Center, and Library. Staff will remain at work but buildings are closed to the public. Interaction with staff will be via phone, email, video conferencing, etc.
  • Cancel or reschedule public events
  • Identify quarantine zones for staffing to ensure continuity of operations
  • Reduce garbage and recycling collection

 

The City appreciates your patience as we all work through this uncharted territory. Staff is here to serve residents and businesses. We encourage employees, residents, and businesses to obtain information about Coronavirus from official sources such as the CDC (https://www.cdc.gov/coronavirus/2019-ncov/faq.html) and Tarrant County Health (https://www.tarrantcounty.com/en/public-health.html).

For questions or concerns, please contact the Fire Department at 817-503-1400.

UPDATE - 3/10/2020

The City has procured various items needed to allow first responders to continue operations in the event Coronavirus reaches our community. These items include: masks, Tyvek suits, hand sanitizer, goggles, and gloves. The Fire Department assembled these items into easy-to-access kits. The Police Department has distributed guidelines to all first responders on actions to take before, during, and after an encounter with someone suspect of having the disease.

The City is reviewing all areas that have frequent public interaction and putting processes in place now to reduce physical touch should the need arise. This includes the passing of money, building plans, etc. These business activities can be done online. We encourage this interaction now, but may require it in the future if necessary. If required, the City will look at waiving fees that may result (i.e. online bill pay credit card fee).

The City is examining means to implement social distancing. Social Distancing is a non-pharmaceutical measure used to reduce the spread of a pandemic.  This can include restrictions on the movement of people to reduce contact between individuals in the community, schools, and work place. Measures being examined are items such as installing temporary partitions between employee and customer, taking electronically submitted comments for public meetings, and monitoring large public events. To be clear, the City is NOT cancelling any public meeting or event at this time.

The City encourages employees, residents, and businesses to obtain information about Coronavirus from official sources such as the CDC (https://www.cdc.gov/coronavirus/2019-ncov/faq.html) and Tarrant County Health (https://www.tarrantcounty.com/en/public-health.html). The City has been made aware of several scams taking place and encourages residents to examine each interaction closely before choosing to proceed with a product or service.

UPDATE - 3/6/2020
The Colleyville Fire Department, Police Department, and City Manager's Office have met regularly over the last several weeks to prepare for Coronavirus should the disease reach our community. The City's top priority is to keep first responders safe so they can continue to operate and treat patients. Staff is in constant contact with Tarrant County Health Department, as well as GCISD, to share information and coordinate response. We have taken several precautionary steps:
  • Fire Department assembled kits with necessary items (masks, goggles, hand sanitizer, Tyvek suit) to keep first responders safe should they encounter a patient exhibiting symptoms of CoVid-19
  • Police Department has distributed guidelines to all first responders on actions to take before, during, and after an encounter with someone suspect of having the disease
  • Preparation of response plan that aligns with our existing Emergency Management Plan and includes specific measures and trigger points should an outbreak occur
  • Commonly touched items, such as door knobs and staircase rails, at City facilities are regularly being disinfected

The City encourages residents to take the following steps to keep themselves and others safe:

 

  • Wash hands often for 20 seconds
  • Use hand sanitizer with at least 60% alcohol
  • Cover coughs and sneezes with a tissue    
  • Avoid touching your eyes, nose, and mouth
  • Disinfect surfaces that are touched often
  • Avoid close contact with people who are sick

For any questions or concerns, contact the Fire Department at 817-503-1400. The City will continue to provide updates as new information becomes available.
