What is the City of Borger doing to slow the spread?

The City’s top priority is the safety and well being of our community and this includes following recommendations and guidelines from State and Federal government sources. We are committed to keeping our residents informed with factual information during this difficult time. 

  • Collaborating with area public schools, industry, healthcare providers and local government officials to educate the public
    • Created fluid Borger Area Coronavirus (COVID-19) status level chart to help increase public education in a quick effective manner during this unprecedented time
    • Created web page dedicated to keeping residents informed and helping spread prevention messages
    • Created text option for local COVID-19 updates, text HUTCHHEALTH TO 888-777
  • Amended certain City facilities open-door policies to help slow the spread
  • Waiving late fees on utility bills and service will not be disconnected, however billing will continue
  • Participating in daily conference calls with the State and local health officials regarding the disease.
  • Regularly encouraging the use of online options and phone service utilization in all public education efforts
  • Ensuring "continuity of service" by closing doors of certain City facilities to the public. Continuity of service ensures we remain operational and able to provide essential City services throughout the entirety of this worldwide pandemic. This is partly done by protecting our limited City personnel that are able to perform skill-specific operations. The City’s priority remains the safety and wellness of our community and this includes following all State and Federal guidelines. If one or more of our employees were to contract the virus it is recommended from both State and Federal services that they enter a period of quarantine for no less than 14 days. Many of our employees are so essential that a 14 day quarantine would severely impact the delivery of City services, such as police and fire protection, trash pickup, water and wastewater services and more. We strive to ensure our employees remain as safe as possible for the benefit of both our citizens and our employees.
