Reading City Hall reopened on Monday, January 31st, following a two week precautionary closure.
“Due to a decreased number of COVID-19 cases in the City of Reading and Berks County, City Hall will reopen on Monday, Jan. 31st. However, we will continue with the implementation of protocols in order to ensure maximum safety for our employees as well as members of the public” said Mayor Eddie Morán.
“Mask wearing will continue, especially when responsible social distancing cannot be achieved. This includes the corridors in City Hall at all times.”
In addition, virtual meetings will continue as a standard operating procedure to minimize in-person contact. Visitors will be required to wear masks regardless of their vaccination status. Signage at the public entrances have been replaced in English and Spanish.
Morán added, “I thank all of our fine City employees – and members of the public – for their full cooperation during these difficult times as we continue providing services while keeping City Hall, the City of Reading, and our entire community safe”
During the closure, cleaning schedules were elevated on every floor of City Hall and are planned to continue.
Reading City Hall has been closed since January 17.
