Mayor Jeff Cheney announced the virtual town hall, which is set to include the “latest information about the virus” and Frisco’s response to the developing situation, in an email sent by the city March 12.
The public can listen in by calling 888-409-5380 or watch the session live on the city’s Facebook page.
Dr. Mark Gamber, Frisco’s medical director and public health authority, will be part of the town hall along with health experts from Denton and Collin counties.
The message also states Frisco has suspended city business travel outside Dallas-Fort Worth area for its employees.
“It’s an effort to reduce our employees’ and our community’s risk of exposure to the virus,” Cheney’s message states.
As part of the message, Cheney said Frisco’s emergency management personnel have been preparing for coronavirus since December and are engaging in daily briefings with the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, the Texas Department of State Health Services and the Department of Homeland Security.
“Our city of Frisco buildings are cleaned daily,” Cheney’s message states. “But during this challenging time, our city and contracted custodial staff are cleaning ‘high touch points’ (such as restrooms, door handles, elevator buttons) multiple times a day.”
