Multiple new COVID-19 cases reported among Salisbury City employees

SALISBURY, Md. – City Administrator Julia Glanz announced on Friday that multiple new cases of COVID-19 have been reported across several different departments in Salisbury city government.

We’re told that in the past week, three members of the Salisbury Fire Department and one employee from the Government Office Building tested positive.

Per protocol, all city employees who have tested positive have been given temporary leave of their jobs and are quarantining. Employees are being sent for testing and remain at home if they were close contacts of the positive employees.

“We have been fortunate in the fact that we have seen relatively few cases within our organization,” said City Administrator Glanz. “The measures we have taken up to this point have been effective in slowing the spread of the virus within our ranks. Nationwide, however, we are in the midst of an upswing in COVID diagnoses. We will continue to be transparent with the public about our positive employees, as it is critical to keep COVID-19 at the front of all of our minds – as much as we want life to return to “normal”.
