COVID-19 Update from Mayor Strickland (4/4)

I talked yesterday about the enforcement of the Safer at Home Order, and wanted to update you on our noncompliant numbers through yesterday.

Total Original Complaints125
Total Duplicate Complaints22
First Visit Inspections Completed98
In compliance 1st visit68
Violations (Warnings) Issued19
*Placards Posted1

*Placards posted is a notice posted on the business telling them to vacate the property until further notice.

As you can see, the majority of businesses come into compliance quickly. Of all the inspections, only one refused to comply, and code enforcement is going out daily to inspect new complaints.

To file a complaint against a business or person not in compliance with the Safer at Home Order, call 311.

Help us help you by doing these things:

  • Stay home.
  • If you work at an essential business or need to run an essential errand and are sick—don’t. Stay home and ask a family member or a friend to do it for you.
  • If you need to go to work, grocery, or get take-out at restaurant, wear something to cover your mouth and nose.
  • When you wear a mask or covering, you still need to stay 6 feet from others.
  • If you walk or do another outside activity, stay at least 6 feet from anyone else.
