City of Gainesville – Changes to upcoming meetings, workshops

Press release from City of Gainesville

Following recent social media announcements that Gainesville Mayor Lauren Poe, Commissioner David Arreola, and Commissioner Harvey Ward have all tested positive for COVID-19, Interim City Manager Cynthia Curry issued this statement:

With the most recent COVID-19 data for our community showing a rising number of cases, we are postponing several upcoming meetings and events to help ensure the health and safety of our neighbors. 

Two Gainesville City Commission special meetings originally scheduled on Monday, May 16, to discuss the Gainesville Regional Utilities budget have been postponed. Please visit our Notice of Meetings webpage for a current calendar of public meetings. In addition, two upcoming affordable housing workshops (May 17 and 21) have been rescheduled for early June. We’ll have more information about these changes on our website soon. 

As always, we recommend following the CDC’s COVID-19 prevention strategies including: wearing masks, practicing social distancing and good hygiene, and most importantly, getting vaccinated and boosted. We encourage all neighbors who feel unwell to get tested and contact their healthcare providers for treatment options. We are all weary in this third year of the pandemic but let’s remember we are a resilient community. Let’s take care of ourselves and each other. Stay safe.

  • Isn’t it weird how the people who wear the mask
    And got the shot are the ones getting sick?

    • Didn’t they get their booster shots? The shot his
      What’s making them sick and the mask is creating
      The perfect environment for germs. These control
      Freaks are just pushing the Democrat commie new
      World order great reset plan. I don’t know anyone
      Who has been sick and these 3 who push the mask &
      Vax got it again and again? It’s fake. All a big lie.

  • It’s their Soddom & Gomorrah lifestyle with their
    Gender dysphoria, dope smoking, & open containers.
    & lgbwxyz has given them an acquired immune deficiency disorder. They are now immune dependent
    On getting booster shots…they ruined their immune systems. Healthy people with healthy minds don’t
    Get sick.

  • They reap what they sow. They are Covid super spreaders…it’s psychosomatic.
