Coronavirus Advisory & Cancellations

Coronavirus Advisory, Cancellations and Closures
Posted on 03/13/2020
City of New Hope staff continue to monitor the outbreak of 2019 novel coronavirus, as it does with all situations that could result in emergency situations within the community. Planning for these types of emergencies is made in conjunction with West Metro Fire-Rescue District, Robbinsdale School District 281, Hennepin County Emergency Management Services and the Minnesota Department of Health.

At this time, the city recommends following everyday preventative actions as prescribed by the CDC, listed below, and staff have made the decision to cancel some programs, as listed at the bottom of the page.

» Avoid close contact with sick people.
» While sick, limit contact with others as much as possible.
» Stay home if you are sick.
» Cover your nose and mouth when you cough or sneeze. Avoid touching your eyes, nose and mouth with unwashed hands; germs spread this way.
» Clean and disinfect surfaces and objects that may be contaminated with germs.
» Wash your hands often with soap and water for at least 20 seconds. If soap and water are not available, use an alcohol-based hand rub with at least 60% alcohol.

The CDC has a dedicated webpage, www.cdc.gov/ncov, for information on 2019-nCoV and the city recommends using that resource to keep yourself knowledgeable about the facts surrounding the virus.
