IMPORTANT UPDATE FROM MAYOR PICKLESIMER:


COVID-19 Update
At the last meeting of the Chelsea City Council on Tuesday, May 5th, 2020, the Council announced the Reopening Chelsea Responsibly Plan for our city relaxing guidelines on the use of our recreational facilities.

Today, Governor Kay Ivey announced revisions to the Safer at Home guidelines set to expire on May 15, 2020. These revisions will allow additional openings in our city effective at 8:00 am on Monday, May 11th, 2020.

They are as follows:
Restaurants are allowed to open at 50% occupancy with strict adherence to distancing guidelines and standards for cleaning and disinfection of the facility agreed to by the Alabama Restaurant Association and the State Department of Health.

Hair Salons - Nail Salons - Barber Shops are allowed to open at 50% occupancy with strict adherence to distancing guidelines and standards for cleaning and disinfection of the facility agreed to by the Alabama Cosmetology Board and the State Department of Health.

Gyms - Exercise - Athletic Facilities are allowed to open at 50% occupancy with strict adherence to distancing guidelines and standards for cleaning and disinfection of the facility agreed to by the State Department of Health.
Churches and Worship Centers are allowed to begin having services with strict distancing guidelines and standards for cleaning and disinfection of the facilities agreed to by the State Department of Health.

The maximum number to gather restrictions have been lifted as long as distancing guidelines are met.

In addition, we are happy to announce the opening of two city facilities. The Chelsea Community Center and the Chelsea Public Library will reopen to the public on Monday, May 11th, 2020 with standard hours. These facilities will be opened but will maintain a cautious approach to occupancy and cleaning standards deemed necessary to insure the health and safety of the visitors and the employees. Please see the website and Facebook pages of these facilities for further information.

We truly wish to thank our citizens and business owners for the sacrifices that have been made to keep us all safe and healthy.  Let’s all make every effort to practice good hygiene and distancing but also to support our local businesses as we begin to rebuild Chelsea in a safe and responsible way.

Thank you!!
