In light of the recent concerns surrounding COVID-19 and in line with County, State and Federal guidelines and recommendations, the City of Laguna Hills, in an effort to reduce the potential exposure and spread of COVID-19 and protect the public and our workforce, has enacted the mitigation measures listed below. These measures will go into effect at 6 pm on March 13, 2020 and continue through March 31, 2020. The City will continue to assess the situation and may extend, cancel, modify or add to these measures as the situation evolves.
1. Laguna Hills City Hall will be closed to public access beginning Monday, March 16th through Friday, March 20th. All City employees will report to work as usual and conduct City business by phone and email. The only change will be that the public will not have personal access to employees at City Hall. During the week of March 16th, City staff will develop a transition plan to an appointment-only, public access basis going forward with the intention of implementing the plan the week of March 23rd. All field operations including police, fire, waste disposal, building inspections, street maintenance, parks maintenance, etc. will continue uninterrupted.
2. The Laguna Hills Community Center will be closed to the public. All reservations, classes and events have been cancelled or postponed. Refunds will be provided where warranted. The Laguna Hills Orange County Technology Library, located inside the Community Center will be closed.

According to the Department of Public Health, the timely implementation of aggressive strategies that create social distance and those that reduce close contact of people not regularly together has proven effective in prior pandemics at delaying rates of transmission and reducing illness and even death. We understand that some of these measures will be an inconvenience to some members of the public and we thank you for your understanding.
