The attached is floating around. It looks similar to the March 20 order on limiting gatherings to 10 or less, but it is dated March 22 and includes a where as from March 21.

Is this public yet?

Subject: Update - Stay in Place Order

Good morning Mayor and Board.

As you are likely aware, the larger metro governments have issued ``Stay at Home orders, effective Tuesday and lasting for thirty days. We have been in contact with the Platte County Health Department. They are working with their Attorney in issuing a similar order. It is expected later today. A copy is supposed to be sent to Chief Chrisman, as soon as it is issued. We will pass it along once provided to the City.

To remain consistent with our practices during this emergency event, I ask that this information not be made public until the Health Department issues its order. We are trying to maintain consistent messaging and will wait for the order prior to pushing it out to the public. I appreciate your cooperation.

As far as city operations, we will continue to maintain essential services. City Hall will be closed to the public effective on Tuesday. We are working on scheduling to assure we have staff there to answer the phone and handle any other needed duties. Most administrative staff will continue to work remotely, coming into city hall on an as needed basis such as paying bills, or picking up work to take home. We will communicate with the public our availability for all city matters via telephone, email, and mail.

In addition to the Police Department maintaining normal operations, we are working on a plan to have our parks and public works folks available to keep the city's infrastructure operating. This includes the parks and nature sanctuaries, the use of which will be allowed by the public since it is an exempted activity during the Stay at Home order.

Please let me know if you have any questions.
