COVID-19 Safety Concerns Prompt South Coast City To Shut Down City Hall


The spike in coronavirus cases is prompting a South Coast city to close its city hall to walk in traffic.

The City of Camarillo will only be offering services online and by phone beginning Monday.

Key areas like law enforcement, fire protection, water, and sewer services will be unaffected.  But, the remote operations may mean a delayed response for things like permits and other document requests.

City officials say the safety of staff members and the public comes first.  The Camarillo City Council has been holding its public meetings online since the beginning of the pandemic, and will continue to do so.
