FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE:
RIVIERA BEACH TAKING COVID-19 PRECAUTIONS TO PROTECT THE PUBLIC
RIVIERA BEACH, FL. (Jan. 7, 2022) – Due to the recent rise in COVID-19 cases, the
City is taking safeguards to protect the public and its staffers.
Out of an abundance of caution, starting Monday, Jan. 10, all Public Safety Facilities
such as the Police Department, all Fire Stations and the Utility Special District property
will be closed to the public, except for the lobby areas to limit the potential spread of the
virus. City operations are expected to run smoothly during this change.
It is also required that every visitor, patron and staff member wear appropriate facial
coverings when indoors at all City facilities — whether they be leased, owned or
operated by the City or an affiliated operation.
City Manager Jonathan Evans is urging the community to be cautious as COVID-19
cases spike countywide.
“Please be careful and operate under the pretense that any person you interact with
may be positive for the coronavirus,” Evans said.
