The last couple of weeks have been trying times for the City of Eastpointe and as a city we have continued to work together. Eastpointe is moving to a “critical staff and services only plan” to help stop the spread of COVID 19.

The city has attempted to maintain as many city services as possible with an at-home workforce and a skeleton crew at City Hall and other city buildings. It is now time to move to an even more scaled-back operation, which will close city buildings to the general public & remain open only for critical employees who are to report on an as needed basis, providing those services which protect the health and safety of the community. This measure was issued March 23rd, by Governor Gretchen Whitmer, requiring most Michigan residents to stay home, and is set to end April 13th.

The best way to slow the spread COVID-19 (coronavirus) and protect your community is to stay home and avoid unnecessary meetups.

I’d like to send my condolences to the families that have lost a loved one to this and I send my sincerest prayers to those who are currently fighting the battle. I would like to thank those on the frontline for putting their lives on the line everyday to combat this pandemic. A last thank you to the residents of Eastpointe for continuing to work together and showing what it means to be a family town. Thank you.
