"We know these are difficult and uncertain times, but we urge our residents to remain patient. The safety of our community is at stake, and limited contact with others is the only effective defense against the spread of COVID-19," said Sterling Heights Mayor Michael Taylor.

We appreciate everyone's cooperation, and we encourage everyone to visit the City's coronavirus web page at www.sterling-heights.net/communityinfo for best practices to stem community spread of COVID-19, answers to residents' most frequently asked questions (including how to transact business with the City during this temporary closure) and a list of resources for our business community with important information including workplace COVID-19 protocols and economic injury disaster loan programs to help small businesses during this crisis."
