Village Employee Tests Positive for COVID-19

covid-19-1330px

The Village has taken an aggressive and conservative approach to managing the pandemic spread of COVID-19 in our community.  Those measures have included park and building closures in accordance with state regulations, implementation of social distancing, use of alternative policing methods, daily employee intake screening, using personal protective equipment (PPE) such as masks and gloves, and extensive sanitization procedures.  This week, we are sharing that we have an employee who developed symptoms consistent with COVID-19, and who has tested positive for the illness.  The employee is in good spirits and is anticipated to make a full recovery.

In any instance where the affected employee had direct contact with other persons, those people have been contacted and advised of the potential exposure.  If you had contact with a Village employee and did not receive personal notification, you are not affected by this matter.  Please understand that we will not be responding to inquiries regarding the employee’s identity, department, shift or working patterns.  We have taken a conservative approach to directly notifying persons who should be advised of the potential exposure, and we are sharing this update with our residents for informational purposes.  We ask that you not contact the Village to inquire about the employee, as again, we are not sharing further information, and responding to these inquiries uses valuable resources that we need to deploy in other ways to maintain our operations.

There have been 35 confirmed cases of COVID-19 in Pingree Grove, and likely more unconfirmed/untested cases.   As the Village and state start to experience reopening, we encourage all residents to follow the CDC recommendations and maintain use of masks and other PPE, as well as maintaining social distancing and enhanced sanitization practices.  For residents with questions regarding business reopening practices, we recommend you review the Department of Commerce and Economic Opportunity website for detailed information.

The Municipal Center lobby will remain closed at this time, as we continue to evaluate and implement best practices for preventing the further spread of this illness in our community.  We appreciate your support and understanding.
