CLINTON TOWNSHIP – An effort to further protect residents from COVID-19 began today at the Clinton Township Civic Center. Visitors entering the building will now do so through the main entrance only. Once inside, they are greeted by an attendant who will guide them through the necessary steps to ensure safety.
“Unfortunately, the COVID-19 pandemic has shown no signs of letting up,” said Township Supervisor Bob Cannon. “As a result, we’ve hired an attendant to meet visitors and have implemented even greater safety measures from those already established,” he said.
Visitors are offered clean pens and hand sanitizer before filling out a health waiver form, asking for their name, address. Next, they are escorted to a kiosk, which automatically takes their temperature reading. A normal reading allows the visitor to continue into the building.
“The safety of the people who enter the Civic Center has been my number one priority since last March,” said Cannon. “We’ve been open to the public since June without incident, and I credit that to the work of our staff who thought about every possible protocol to mitigate this horrible virus.”
By the end of December, Cannon expects the Township to offer a touch screen kiosk for visitors to fill out the health waiver and reduce the need for paper waste. A sanitized stylus pen will replace ink pens. Funding for the extra precautions will come from the remaining CARES Act dollars.
The Civic Center is open Monday through Friday, from 8:30 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. No appointment is needed to enter the building.
