Post Date:03/13/2020

COVID-19 UPDATEEden Prairie’s Emergency Management Team is closely monitoring the COVID-19 pandemic in conjunction with public safety officials in neighboring cities and schools, along with our EMS, county and state partners.

What the City is Doing

We are cleaning — with a focus on disinfecting high-touch areas daily at all City facilities including the City Center, Community Center and Eden Prairie Liquor stores.

We are implementing Minnesota Department of Health recommendations as outlined by the CDC — the City is following mitigation guidelines including encouraging social distancing measures with staff and the public, and reducing and canceling activities.

What We Ask of You

Help us stay healthy — wash your hands with hot soapy water for 20 seconds before, during and after visiting City facilities.

Stay home — if you are sick or have been exposed to someone who is sick, please conduct City business online or by phone.

Do your part — when using City amenities, especially Community Center locker rooms and fitness equipment, please clean up after yourself.
