URGENT PUBLIC SAFETY NOTICE FOR CITIZENS THAT ATTENDED THE CITY OF SMITHVILLE COUNCIL MEETING IN PERSON ON APRIL 12, 2021
A City employee that attended the Monday, April 12, 2021 City Council meeting tested positive for COVID-19 on Thursday, April 15, 2021. The employee was wearing a mask and asymptomatic during the meeting. Due to medical confidentiality, the name of the City employee cannot be divulged. Unfortunately, last Monday night’s Council meeting was packed and there is a possibility that some citizens in attendance may have been exposed. Communication with Dr. Desmar Walkes (Bastrop County Health Authority) determined the risk of infection is low for those who had no direct contact with the City employee at a distance less than 6-feet and for no more than 15-minutes. Furthermore, the risk is low to those citizens that had received their second COVID-19 vaccination at least 14-days prior. Immediately upon learning the employee tested positive for COVID-19, City Hall was closed and our response plan activated. The Bastrop County Health Authority was notified. Contact tracing and employee testing were initiated. In addition, ServePro was dispatched to clean and disinfect City Hall and the facility is now safe to re-enter. Going forward, it is recommended that all persons doing business at City Hall continue to practice social distancing and wear their masks.
