Aurora City Council ends disaster declaration, keeps virtual meetings

Aurora Sentinel: City lawmakers ended a two-and-a-half month long disaster declaration on Monday, but decided to continue meeting remotely for the foreseeable future. 

Aurora City Manager Jim Twombly enacted the disaster declaration on March 18 due to the COVID-19 pandemic. According to the Tri-County Health Department, there have been 3,663 confirmed cases of the virus in the city. There have likely been hundreds more unconfirmed cases, public health officials say. 

Twombly recommended to council members that the declaration end now that the number of coronavirus cases have significantly dropped and state health officials have moved to a “safer-at-home” model allowing many businesses to re-open with social distancing guidelines.
