As covid-19’s rate of transmission continues to increase in California, the city of Fullerton has taken action against it and made many measures to decrease its presence in Fullerton while also giving the tools for its citizens to persevere through these uncertain times.
Some city facilities are almost entirely closed to the public. These facilities include the library, the Fullerton Community Center and the Fullerton Museum Center.
City hall is also almost entirely closed off from the public. Most services at city hall will be conducted through an appointment and in specific scenarios a drop-off or pick-up basis. Although city hall is mostly closed off from the public, they can still be contacted at (714)738-6300.
Although some city facilities are closed, city parks are still open to the public. Public spaces at parks will be frequently cleaned.
The police and fire departments have made many adjustments as well, closing off their front counters to the public, but still available by call.
The police department has been split up into three separate platoons that do not overlap, and executive staff are on separate shifts that also do not overlap. Along with this, police will not be actively enforcing overnight parking violations and will assess reported violations on a case-by-case basis. All services are continuing except fingerprinting.
Fullerton has complied with county regulations with the closure of dine-in restaurants to the public. Restaurants will now have to serve the public via delivery or take out.
The fire chief is heading a city emergency operations center, looking over the city’s actions against covid-19.
Water and electricity will not be turned off if one is unable to pay.
