Last week, one employee who works in Town Hall tested positive for COVID-19.
The individual was last at work on March 16 and has been sheltering in place since the Public Health Order went into effect. The employee did not have symptoms while in the office, reducing, though not eliminating, the probability of any spread, and is doing well. In an abundance of caution, employees who work in the vicinity of the diagnosed employee are self-quarantining and have been advised to contact their physician if any symptoms appear. Due to the many different services the Town continued to provide to the public during that time, we are sharing this information so community members may also take the necessary precautions and communicate with their doctors if symptoms occur.
Beginning in late January, the Town has proactively engaged in COVID-19 prevention by implementing best health practices. These include social distancing, enhanced cleaning and disinfection of Town Hall, and other measures. The health of all Town employees and the public remains a priority for the Town of Los Gatos.
