Reconstitution of Operations Plan - July 6, 2020


With the rising number of Coronavirus cases in Georgia and DeKalb County, the city of Chamblee is modifying its re-opening plan. 

Beginning July 6, 2020, 

  • All city facilities will be closed to the public except by appointment.  We will evaluate on Friday of each week.
  • Staff will be working, and telephonic and teleconference meetings are the primary way to meet with city staff. Appointments for face-to-face meetings will be granted only if necessary. Should an in-person meeting request be granted, customers and city employees will be required to wear masks. Masks will be provided if necessary. No employee is required to meet with someone if that person is unwilling to wear a mask and maintain social distance, is presenting symptoms of a virus or flu, or becomes argumentative.  
  • City facilities will be minimally staffed.  City employees are asked to telework unless otherwise directed by supervisors. 
  • City sanitation will continue with a normal schedule, to include leaf and limb pickup.
  • Park open areas and trails will remain open for individuals practicing social distancing.
  • Park amenities will remain open and are cleaned once per week - play at your own risk.
  • Leagues and programming on enclosed athletic fields and in the Community Center will continue with adherence to CDC guidance. Such guidance may change, but currently emphasizes smaller groups, each participant has own equipment (ball, glove, racquet, etc.) for use throughout, temperature screenings, etc.
