To the citizens of Van Horne!
I guess unless you live under a rock, you are well aware of the coronavirus sweeping our country. Whether it gets worse here or not it is already changing our lives. For right now the city expects no changes in service.
The only thing we ask is to make sure your garbage bags are tied or sealed tightly so the garbage workers don’t have to touch opened bags. We will try to give updates if things start to change.
I guess recommendations that you have heard a hundred times — Use common sense when around people, keep a good distance from anyone coughing etc. and remember to keep washing your hands.
It is now recommended to keep gatherings to groups under 10 people. Also a reminder if you are able to give blood please consider doing so there has been a lot of people cancelling and blood supplies are fairly tight.
Thanks for everything you can do to help keep our residents safe.
Your Mayor Marty
