The City of Gravette is closely monitoring information about COVID-19. While there are no confirmed cases in our area yet, we are taking steps to protect the health and safety of our community.
Starting today at 2:00 PM, the Gravette Public Library will close to the public through the end of the month. Utility customers are encouraged to pay their bills online, at www.GravetteAR.com, or by utilizing the drive through at City Hall. Fingerprinting at the police station will be temporarily suspended. Park bathrooms are being sanitized frequently. Per CDC guidelines, gatherings at city buildings should be limited to no more than fifty people.
City employees will have their temperatures monitored regularly and any employee with a temperature or other symptoms of COVID-19 will be sent home and asked to contact their doctor.
Water shut offs will be waived for the March billing cycle.
First responders are equipped with isolation kits and face masks and may utilize them on certain calls where symptoms mirror those of COVID-19. If you need emergency services, please protect the safety of our first responders and those around you by notifying dispatch if you are experiencing symptoms of COVID-19, like a fever, cough, or shortness of breath.
You are encouraged to take basic health safety steps to keep yourself and those around you safe. Wash your hands regularly. Cough or sneeze into your elbow. Frequently disinfect high touch surfaces. Stay home if you are sick. Check in with elderly or home-bound neighbors.
The health and safety of the citizens of Gravette and city staff is incredibly important. We will continue to monitor the situation and provide you with additional updates as conditions change. For the most timely and up-to-date information, please visit www.cdc.gov or healthy.arkansas.gov.
