Palm Springs city facilities Monday began temporary closures to the public in a move aimed at reducing the spread of COVID-19.
Due to the recent surge of COVID cases, starting Monday, and for approximately two to three weeks, all city facilities will close their doors to the public, according to Palm Springs Communications Director Amy Blaisdell.
City clerk, planning, engineering, building, business licenses and other services will continue to be available over the phone or by email. According to Blaisdell, appointments for work that cannot be done by phone or email will be accepted during this period.
The closures will also apply to the Palm Springs Public Library, which will continue to offer pickup services via its Library-A-Go-Go Program during the closure, and the Palm Springs Swim Center, which will temporarily close for at least 10 days.
The closures will be reevaluated as new data about COVID cases becomes available, according to officials.
