COVID-19 & FARMINGTON CITY UPDATE

UPDATE 5.21.20

The Governor has announced that we can transition to the low-risk phase (yellow).  Therefore, we are happy to announce the following changes:

The playgrounds, gym, and public restrooms are now open.  We are anticipating opening the pool towards the middle of June.  A final decision will be made closer to that time. 

Beginning June 9, 2020 City Council and Planning Commission meetings will be held in the Council Chambers.  In the event that we have more than 50 people, we will have other rooms available for residents to still be able to attend the meetings.

To continue to protect the health of the residents and the employees we are still encouraging everyone to social distance whenever possible.     

We want to thank you for your patience and cooperation through this process.    

UPDATE 5.4.2020

In following the Governor’s guidelines to transition from the urgent phase (red) to the stabilization phase (orange), Farmington City will be making the following changes:

Beginning Monday, May 4th the City Hall, Parks and Recreation offices and Police Station (no fingerprinting until further notice) will be open for limited business.  To protect the health of the residents and the employees we encourage residents to continue to do as much business over the phone or on the internet as possible.  To ensure social distancing, we will have limited staff in the office at any given time.

Pickleball courts are open for play.  We all need to be vigilant and ensure social distancing.  If the courts are full, we strongly discourage standing around waiting to play.

City parks are open for walking and other activities where there are a limited number of people and social distancing is occurring.

The playgrounds, gym and public restrooms will remain closed until further notice.  A decision regarding opening the outdoor pool has not yet been made.  We will continue to prepare for a possible opening and will update the residents as soon as more information is available.

We want to thank you for your cooperation during these challenging times.  We are hopeful that if residents will follow these guidelines as we move forward, we will come out of this a much stronger community.

Amidst the widespread disruptions caused by the COVID-19 pandemic, we must make difficult decisions on whether to cancel certain activities hosted by the City.  Based on the guidance of the Davis County Health Department to discourage mass gatherings, and to protect residents from the spread of the virus,

Festival Days will be cancelled this year.  The safety of residents is our first priority.
