FCA has assured the City that all CDC and internal protocols have been implemented to reduce the risk of further transmission of the virus.
While this news is not positive, the City urges residents to remain calm and continue to limit social interaction to the greatest extent possible. This practice is the best defense against transmission of the COVID-19 virus.
Towards this end, the City has closed all of its facilities and municipal operations except for police and fire services. The fact that many Sterling Heights businesses have followed suit will help the effort to slow the progression of the COVID 19 virus. The City continues to partner with other agencies at the federal, state and county level to ensure preparedness for the challenges to be presented in the oncoming weeks.
In addition, the City has established a host of resources on its website at sterling-heights.net/communityinfo. Information includes best practices for stemming 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.

Our thoughts and prayers are with every person who is being treated for the virus.
"We will get through this public health care crisis – but our ability to get through this as quickly as possible depends on all of us working together, caring for each other and following the guidelines and protocols established by medical experts and our state and federal government agencies," said Mayor Michael Taylor.
