Our Borough Office is closed to the Public. Please leave Sewer and Trash payments in office box. Please don’t hesitate to call the office with any questions.
Keeping our employees, residents, visitors and vendors safe is our top priority. To that end, the Silverdale Borough Office is open for business, but closed to public access due to the Wuhan Virus. Please call or email the borough office to transact any business. A meeting may be considered in the case of an emergency. All committee meetings are canceled, and all building rentals are canceled for at least two weeks.
Employees must let us know if you have a contagious disease that could impact other employee’s health. Symptoms include:
• Shortness of breath
The Center for Disease Control (CDC) believes at this time that symptoms may appear in as few as 2 days or as long as 14 days after exposure. Corona virus is believed to spread from person-to-person, primarily through respiratory droplets produced when an infected person coughs or sneezes. The virus is also believed to spread by people touching a surface or object and then touching one’s mouth, nose, or possibly the eyes. Employees should follow the following general practices to help prevent exposure to corona virus:
• Frequently wash your hands with soap and water for at least 20 seconds.
• If soap and running water are not available, use an alcohol-based hand rub that contains at least 60% alcohol.
• Avoid touching your eyes, nose, or mouth with unwashed hands.
• Avoid close contact with people who are sick.
If you are feeling ill, have a fever, cough or difficulty breathing, stay home. You should not return to work until there is no signs of illness or fever, without the use of fever reducing medicine for 24 hours.
Thank you for your cooperation in the matter and please contact the Borough Office with any questions.
