The City of Sublimity’s top priority is the health and safety of our employees and our community members.  At this time the risk of contracting COVID-19 in Sublimity is low. Nonetheless, the City of Sublimity is working on a Coronavirus mitigation plan to keep our community safe.


The City is looking to the recommendations of the Center For Disease Control (CDC) and the Oregon Health Authority for guidance. For more information, please visit their websites by clicking on the links above.

The City has begun to take precautionary measures by sanitizing City facilities and having hand sanitizer readily available to staff and customers.  

We urge residents to limit their exposure to City Hall and to make payments via one of the two drop boxes available in front of City Hall and/or the online services available on our website.  If you are sick, have been exposed to someone who is sick, or have traveled outside of the US in the last 21 days, please do not enter City Hall. City Hall is a high traffic area and taking these precautionary measures now can prevent many from getting sick. We will be waiving any late fees for persons who are unable to make it into City Hall to make their payment in a timely manner.  Please call City Hall and work out any arrangements that need to be made. 

Looking forward, we will reschedule any public meetings as needed.  The Sublimity Heritage Society meeting scheduled for next week is cancelled and will be rescheduled at a later date.  And, if there are any announcements or closures we will post to NextDoor Sublimity, Sublimity Facebook page, and the Sublimity Website. 


Some things that you can do now are:

  • Wash your hands often with soap and water for at least 20 second, especially after you have been in a public place. If soap and water are not readily available, use a hand sanitizer that contains at least 60% alcohol.

  • Avoid touching your eyes, nose, and mouth.

  • Avoid close contact with people who are sick.

  • Put distance between yourself and other people. This is especially important for people who are at high risk of getting very sick.

  • Stay home if you are sick.
