City Employee Tests Positive for COVID-19

Bike Salisbury

Salisbury – Mayor Jake Day has announced that a municipal employee of the City of Salisbury has tested positive for COVID-19.  The employee, a member of the Salisbury Fire Department, is currently presenting with a cough, but no other symptoms.  The employee will remain in home isolation as mandated by the Wicomico County Health Department.  At this time, there have been no other confirmed cases of COVID-19 among City of Salisbury employees.

Essential workers have their temperatures taken at the beginning of each shift, and , beginning this week, will be required to wear N95 masks at all times when on-duty.  While these measures can help to minimize the spread of the virus, no method of protection is 100% effective at keeping you infection-free.  With the number of confirmed cases in Wicomico County quickly approaching 200, social distancing measures remain the best bet for minimizing the impact of the Coronavirus in our community.

While mitigation remains vitally important, we have already begun to see the disease exact its sad toll here in Salisbury. In honor of our neighbors who have lost their battles with COVID-19, Mayor Jake Day has ordered all City of Salisbury flags to be flown at half-mast until further notice.
