Carmel City Hall will close for at least two weeks after four employees who work in the building tested positive for COVID-19. The closure will last through Nov. 20.
City services will be provided remotely. The only exception is the Carmel City Council meeting set for 6 p.m. Nov. 16, which will take place in the city hall chambers. The meeting will also be livestreamed online.
The city’s Household Hazardous Waste Site will also be closed during this time.
“As always, the safety of our employees and our residents is our top priority,” Carmel Mayor Jim Brainard stated. “We will continue to do all that we can to prevent the spread of this virus while we await a vaccine.”
The positive COVID-19 results are the first reported among City Hall employees since the building reopened July 6. It had been closed since late March.
