⁃ Parks are open but playgrounds are closed
⁃ 30 City employees have tested positive, but 25 are recovering and back to work, 5 are still in quarantine

⁃ Will continue to look at events on a month to month basis, may be cancelling future events if they can’t be supported effectively
⁃ Social distancing is working – seem to be moving toward an end date
⁃ Fresh Start Recovery Program: building on Washington Street is going to be used by CRH personnel who don’t want to carry virus back home
⁃ Fraud: No door-to-door test kits available – only CRH is testing; telephone scams re: stimulus check

⁃ Reopening of the economy: Governor’s press conference tomorrow (Friday) and Community task force will meet over the weekend to discuss what that looks like.
