City Manager Update 5/18/20 9AM

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.
 
Highlights of the full phase 1 are included below:

Full Phase 1 Effective Monday, May 18, 2020. Restaurants and Food establishments may increase indoor capacity to 50% with proper social distancing, outdoor seating encouraged. Retail may operate up to 50% capacity indoors. Museums and Libraries may operate up to 50% capacity if permitted by local governments. Gyms and Fitness centers may operate up to 50% capacity, self-sanitize machines and surfaces after use. Amusement Parks may submit re-opening plans to the state. Professional sports venues - Professional sports teams are welcome in Florida. Professional sports venues may open and operate for games, events and training. Vacation rentals - Counties may seek approval to operate vacation rentals by submitting a written request and county vacation rental safety plan to the Florida Department of Business and Professional Regulation. Elective Surgeries may continue if a facility has adequate PPE, hospital bed surge capacity and works with the local community to prevent and/or contain outbreaks in long-term care faciltiies. Barber shops, hair salons and nail salons may operate while adhering to safety protocols effective May 11. Students continue with distance learning at school. Visitation in long-term facilities prohibited for COVID-19. Hospitals required to test all individuals before discharge to long-term facilities. Long-term care facilities required to transfer COVID-19 positive residents if the facility is not equipped for the appropriate care. Guiding principles for reopening - The first priority in re-opening is maintaining the health and safety of all Floridians. Every measure taken by state and local governments, businesses, and individuals should consider the general health and safety of the public. Protection of the vulnerable - Targeted measures should focus on Floridians over the age of 65 and those who have serious underlying medical conditions to prevent exposure to COVID-19. Health Care System Readiness - Health care facilities should be able to return to normal operations through a prudent approach that ensures available capacity to treat COVID-19 patients in the event of a medical surge. Health care systems also need to develop models for the sustainability of medical supplies and preservation of medical resources without the need for public augmentation of medical supplies. Economic Recovery - The Safe, Smart, Step-by-Step plan to re-open Florida should support the highest practicable level of business operation while maintaining public health and safety, so that all Floridians can return to work and the economy can recover.
