City of Duluth Announces Changes to City Operations Due To COVID-19

[Duluth, MN] As a result of the COVID-19 outbreak and for staff and community safety, the City of Duluth is adapting operations throughout the City:

  • Friday, November 6, 2020 - the City of Duluth will continue business as usual, but begin preparation for adjustments to City operations

 

  • Monday, November 9, 2020 - with narrow exceptions, City facilities will be closed to the public. Exceptions are in place for users of the Main Library computer center and park building tenants with written approval for continued building access

 

  • Tuesday, November 10, 2020 - with narrow exceptions, City facilities will be closed to everyone other than essential staff whose work requires access. Exceptions are in place for users of the Main Library computer center and park building tenants with written approval for continued building access

The City of Duluth remains committed to providing the community with the services they expect and need. That includes services from the Duluth Police Department, Duluth Fire Department, Public Works and Utilities, and all other staff who are ready to assist you remotely.

The Main Duluth Public Library branch will continue to operate with limited services. Contactless curbside pickup is available five days per week. The only public access to the interior of the building will be in-person computer use by appointment to ensure that all community members have access to technology. Pandemic protocols are in place at the library to ensure the safety of staff and the public. For hours, updates and information please check the library’s website at www.duluthlibrary.org or call 218-730-4200.

We will be evaluating the situation as it evolves and will update the community as we are able. We continue to urge residents to adhere to State of Minnesota Department of Health and the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention guidelines and wear a mask, maintain social distancing, wash your hands, and stay home if you are sick.
