Second Open Letter From Mayor Walt Johnson to the Citizens of Titusville

Citizens of Titusville,

It is at times like these that I am so thankful to live in our community; Titusville Florida. This is a community that knows how to care for one another and make the best of a difficult and challenging situation. This is a reminder of how in recent times neighbors pulled together after hurricanes Matthew and Irma knocked out utility services for days disrupting our normal daily lives. I observed neighbors helping neighbors, cleaning up debris, sharing essentials, cooking and delivering meals to those in need.

As we know now, this is such a time.

As of today, Wednesday, April 1st the Florida Department of Health had confirmed 38 cases of coronavirus in Brevard County, including cases in our city. The fact that we have seen so few cases in our area underscores the need for all of us to continue to radically adhere to the Centers for Disease Control guidelines for social distancing, hand-washing and especially stay at home if you are sick and avoid close contact with people who are sick.

The State of Florida remains under a state of emergency. Both Brevard County and the City of Titusville have declared local States of Emergency, which underscores the severity of this world-wide pandemic.

The health and safety of our citizens is the city's top priority. The business of the city government must go on during a crisis like this. For that reason, the scheduled April 14th regular City Council meeting will be held but under different circumstances. Social distancing will be observed at this meeting. Citizens can participate in the governing process, but I do urge that unless you have current business on the agenda that you not attend this meeting.

We have closed all City facilities to the general public. Our staff continues to provide essential services to you through the use of technology and telephones. Our Public Safety, Public Works, and Water Resources departments all are continuing essential services with minimum disruptions to you. Our City Emergency Management team continues close coordination with our Brevard County Emergency Management partners.

We will continue to disseminate information to you through various methods such as our city website, social media, and press releases. For up-to-date information, you may call 2-1-1 daily between the hours of 8 a.m. and 6 p.m.  Additionally, you can call the Florida Department of Health call center at 866-779-6121, 24 hours a day, seven days a week.
 
The quality of people in our community is once again showing up during times of crisis. I am already seeing it here in our city through caring for one another and by living our faith that this too shall pass. 



Sincerely,
 
/SIGNED/
 
Walt Johnson
Mayor
