BREVARD COUNTY • COCOA, FLORIDA – The City of Cocoa issued its latest COVID-19 updates in regard to city park closures and public safety.
All City of Cocoa parks will be closed to public gatherings in accordance with the Safer at Home order from the Governor.
The parks will remain open to pedestrian passage ONLY.
Plan ahead if you will be utilizing our parks as the restrooms will be closed and water fountains have been turned off.
Citizens should continue to call 911 when faced with an emergency situation. Emergency response services from the Cocoa Police and Fire Departments have not changed due to COVID-19; however, first responders must take preventative measures to protect themselves while responding to calls.
If you believe that you or someone in your household may have COVID-19 and you need to call 911, it’s critical that you advise the dispatcher handling your call.
Be honest when answering questions regarding recent travel, exposure to anyone who has traveled, or flu-like symptoms such as fever, cough, or shortness of breath.
If you have been placed in mandatory or self-imposed quarantine, please disclose that information to the dispatcher so that first responders know how to best prepare themselves to stay safe while responding to your emergency.
If possible, meet responding crews outside your home or near the front door. This measure will help to limit potential COVID-19 exposure to the crews.
All events and non-essential public meetings have been cancelled until further notice.
Cocoa City Council meetings will still be held but the public will not be permitted inside Council Chambers.
Measures are in place to allow residents and business owners to continue to provide comments on the Council agendas including e-comment on the online agenda or by e-mailing firstname.lastname@example.org.
All City Facilities remain closed to the public to ensure the safety of their employees and to be able to continue to deliver core municipal services to the community.
