The City of Danville is working to make sure that we have plans in place to quickly implement a phased in approach to restore our local economy.  The City government plays a role in coordinating and supporting much of the activity necessary for us to be successful in that effort.  The chart is based on the White House three phase plan to Opening America.  At each phase, there are steps that can be taken to safely get people back to work, school, and recreation.  There are roles described for various aspects of our community to perform in order to make this effort as swift and successful as possible.  City officials are working with public health officials, non-profits, foundations, and other levels of government to be prepared to implement best practices at the appropriate time so that our economy can safely reopen.  Our success relies heavily on the people in our community following social distancing guidelines.  We encourage you to visit the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention website to get tips on how to protect yourself and others.
