There are 356 confirmed COVID-19 cases, and 9 fatalities in Brevard County. There are 43,210 cases in Florida, and 1,875 fatalities in Florida as of May 15th at 6:30pm. The health and safety of our citizens and Staff is the City’s top priority. City Hall and all City facilities reopened to the public today May 18th with reduced hours to allow additional cleaning of contact areas. Hours of operations are 9am – noon and 1pm to 4pm. Extra precautions are being taken during our reopening including issuing antibacterial/antimicrobial washable masks to all of our employees, physical distancing measures, and extra disinfecting cleaning for high traffic areas and touch points. Titusville Police Department and the Community Development Department are working with area businesses regarding the upcoming manned mission of the Space X launch set for May 27th. With the launch being scheduled for 4:30 PM (appx), the city requests area businesses consider sending their employees home early, before the launch, so that they can safely make it home and not add any impact to our city streets that we are already expecting to be packed. We anticipate a high number of visitors and spectators for this launch and are making plans for vehicle, pedestrian and bicycle traffic. Once the launch happens, although we have extensive plans in place to safely route the visitors/spectators out of the city, we do anticipate having traffic delays, mainly along the Washington Ave, Garden St, Cheney Highway, Columbia Blvd and South Street corridors. The current traffic plans include the following after the launch countdown (note these may be subject to change) - A Max Brewer Bridge - Traffic on A Max Brewer Bridge will be sent westbound along Garden Street to I-95 or Northbound along N Washington Avenue to SR 46. No traffic will be allowed to turn south along S Hopkins Avenue. S Washington Avenue - Traffic along S Washington Avenue will be routed the following • If spectators are north of Harrison Street, all attempts will be made to route traffic north along Washington to Garden Street, or continue North to SR46 • If spectators are south of Harrison Street, all attempts will be made to route traffic south along Washington to Cheney Highway then westbound. o At some point if we get backup up along Cheney and Columbia, we will shut west bound access down and require all vehicles to travel south along Washington to Cocoa to take SR 528 and or SR520 westbound. The Florida Department of Health is working with Parrish Medical Center to operate a COVID-19 mobile testing center that can be located throughout the city and North Brevard County. Effective today May 18th , Governor DeSantis issued the go ahead for implementing full phase 1 of the Reopen Florida plan.
