Poway City Hall will remain closed to the public due to an upsurge in COVID-19 infections, officials said Friday. City Hall has been closed to the public since January 4 and staff are available to help customers by phone or email.

“We are not taking this closure lightly,” City Manager Chris Hazeltine said. “We are committed to balancing our public service responsibilities with the health and well-being of our employees.”

Officials said the closure will be reassessed on a weekly basis.

The Mickey Cafagna Community Center, Poway Center for the Performing Arts and other city offices are not affected at this time. But city officials recommend checking their respective webpages for any schedule adjustments. Recreational programs and activities will continue as scheduled unless otherwise stated on the website.

The closure does not affect essential services such as fire, law enforcement and public works.
