In his most recent weekly report, Normandy Park City Manager Mark Hoppen said that an office employee at City Hall may have COVID-19.

The employee – whose identity was not released – is at home and was tested on Thursday, June 12, 2020; results have not yet been announced publicly.

“Some other employees were exposed and are in quarantine and will be tested or will observe 14-day quarantine,” Hoppen said. “One such employee tested negative already (that’s good).”

Hoppen adds that other remote employees are out of the office for at least 72 hours, except one who is processing bills.

The office is being disinfected.

“We are establishing a COVID-19 checklist that must be filled out and submitted to the City Clerk (and to the immediate supervisor) prior to coming into work,” he said. “Temperature should be taken at home prior to completing this work pre-screening checklist. Any negative answer to this work pre-screening checklist means that the employee must stay home for 72 hours or for 14 days depending on the situation.”

According to Public Health – Seattle & King County, Normandy Park’s infection rate for the coronavirus is below the county average, at 6.4 percent, or 302.6 per 100,000 residents. So far the city has not reported any deaths due to COVID-19.
