Calhoun and Gordon County government officials met this morning at 10:00 a.m. to continue planning regarding the COVID 19 situation.
Following the Governor’s outline for limiting the crowd exposure and protecting a vulnerable population, Calhoun and Gordon County have agreed to take preliminary steps to close the Senior Center. Steps will be taken to ensure that the seniors will receive their meal service and we will have staff making daily welfare calls to our seniors.
Both the City of Calhoun and Gordon County Parks and Recreation Departments will close their gyms and will be closed to organized activities, games, practices, and all gatherings. The parks will remain open for walking and passive activities but the intention is to limit social interactions. The recreation departments will be open for the March 24th Presidential Preference Primary.
The conference room of the Gordon County Agriculture Service Center will be closed to public meetings.
We would like to remind everyone that both City and County online services are available for those who do not want to be in public areas. Please see the City and County websites and social media accounts for more details concerning tax payments, utility payments, court services, etc.
Calhoun and Gordon County continue to attend briefings and gather information. The central theme is to be prepared but do not panic while we all work together to promote and maintain a healthy Gordon County.
