What Apex is Doing
To reduce the risk of exposure to our employees and community, the Town of Apex is in the process of implementing the following measures:

  • Limiting the number of employees in town buildings whenever possible, through alternating shifts and using remote work to the fullest extent.
  • Holding meetings in person only when absolutely necessary.
  • Restricting business travel and training, large conferences, or meetings scheduled through April 15, 2020 as well as any business travel by airline. This date will be reevaluated frequently.
  • Asking employees to wash hands upon entering their building each morning, and any time they enter a different town facility.
  • Advising janitorial services to thoroughly wipe and sanitize door handles, stair rails, and light switches when cleaning town facilities.
  • Preparing deep clean sanitation plans for any town facility where an exposure may have occurred.
  • Continuing use of proper PPE for those who jobs may have a higher risk of exposure.
  • Relaxing utility disconnection policies. Utility disconnection due to non-payment will be suspended during this time, to avoid jeopardizing the heath and safety of our residents. Payment for these accounts will be worked through at a future date.
