The City of Harvey is offering its full and unqualified support to an employee who recently tested positive for COVID-19. The employee is not currently at work and has received medical attention. In accordance with CDC guidelines, those who have had close contact were notified to ensure that they are self-monitoring for symptoms and, if appropriate, receiving medical attention and limiting contact with others. In an effort to curb transmission of the virus, we temporarily closed and restricted access to our facility and ensured that the facility has been cleaned and disinfected in accordance with CDC recommendations. The City of Harvey is obtaining guidance from public health officials and will continue to monitor additional guidance as it becomes available. We have and will continue to take steps to ensure the health and safety of our employees, residents, and their families. We are proud of our workforce and offer our whole-hearted support of and continued commitment to everyone’s health and safety in this unprecedented time.
