Ludington government announces closures, cancellations.

LUDINGTON — The City of Ludington is limiting certain operations to mitigate risks of the COVID-19 coronavirus.

“There is no intention on our part to overreact to the Coronavirus (COVID-19), said City Manager Mitch Foster. “However, it’s incumbent upon your local officials to plan for the potential community transmission of COVID-19 and to take the necessary precautions to protect our residents and staff, and to take the necessary actions to slow the transmission of this virus.”

The following operational changes will be in effect until April 6 and will then be reassessed at that time:

  • All City Residents are discouraged from conducting business within the Municipal Office Complex that can otherwise be conducted via U.S. Mail, phone call, or online at www.ludington.mi.us. City night drop-box will be processed continually. Elderly and at-risk populations should avoid the Municipal Office Complex.
  • Police and fire operations are coordinating response plans for potential COVID 19 contact with emergency response agencies and healthcare agencies from across the county.
  • The bathrooms located on North James Street within the James Street Plaza shall be closed immediately.
  • All events scheduled to utilize any municipally owned/operated facilities shall be canceled immediately.
  • The Ludington Downtown Development Authority (Downtown Ludington Board) has cancelled the St. Patrick’s Day Pub Crawl, parade, and scavenger hunt. The Irish Jog 1 Mile/5k/10k races scheduled for March 14 will transition to a virtual race and more information can be found at www.downtownludington.org/runludington.
  • City administration will be taking measures to work with employees whom may become exposed to COVID-19 or who will now be required to take care of their children. All city personnel will err on the side of caution.

“These mitigation measures have been reviewed and endorsed by the District #10 Health Department,” Foster said.
