City of Manhattan Coronavirus (COVID-19) Updates

The City of Manhattan has closed City Hall and most facilities to the public, in an effort to prevent the spread of COVID-19. However, due to the relaxation of local and state health orders, certain city facilities will begin reopening to the public over the next month based upon those guidelines.

The City will continue to monitor and evaluate the situation and make changes as needed. Critical staff will continue to provide essential emergency and operational services to the community while altering certain protocols to reduce exposure and maintain necessary staffing levels. This includes all critical water, sewer, traffic, street, and fire services.

This page will provide the most up-to-date information related to city operations and facilities during the COVID-19 pandemic.
