Dear Community Members,
As the City of Coalinga continues to monitor the COVID-19 pandemic, we are asking the public to follow the directives provided by Governor Newsom to help fight COVID-19.
Those directives are as follows:
It is important that we all work together to help stop the spread of COVID-19. Currently, we are not aware of any confirmed cases within the City of Coalinga, however, that can change at any given moment as the situation remains very fluid. Some are not taking this pandemic seriously and are continuing their daily routines as normal.
I urge each of you to consider the seriousness of this issue and the harm it may cause this community if each and every person is not doing their part to help contain this virus.
We have been made aware of plans to open our local hospital, Coalinga Regional Medical Center, in the upcoming weeks. We have received questions from community members as to whether or not this hospital will become a COVID-19 treatment facility for patients from out of the area. While it does not seem that will be the case based on the resources available to the hospital as well as the way it is set up, the City has not received official communication regarding the intent of the hospital’s reopening. We have reached out to our local state Senators and Congressman in an attempt to obtain a formal statement from the Governor’s Office, but we have not received any official response regarding the intent.
At this time, City Hall is closed to the public. We are continuing to provide essential services and City staff remains available to assist the public. Members of the public may contact City staff by calling (559) 935-1533 or by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org.
I also encourage all community members to like the official City of Coalinga Facebook page as we continue to post one-way communication informing the community on important matters.
Our next regularly scheduled City Council meeting will be held on Thursday, April 2, 2020, beginning at 6:00
p.m. This meeting is being held via webinar only. The webinar address for members of the public is https://www.bigmarker.com/griswold lasalle/4-2-2020-Coalinga-Counci l- Meeting3-2020-04-02-06-00-pm. Community Members will be able to ask questions and make comments during the meeting, but for those who are unable to participate, you can email questions or comments ahead of time to email@example.com and ask that your email me read publicly during the City Council meeting.
Additionally, we need to do what we can to support our local businesses during this tough economic time. Together, we will get through this, but we all need to do our part.
Ron Lander, Mayor
