Sherwood extends its state of emergency declaration
The City of Sherwood has extended its Declaration of State of Emergency period until April 2. The original Declaration of State of Emergency was declared on March 12 for a two-week period by Sherwood City Manager Joseph Gall.
"Obviously we are still in a critical period within Sherwood as we continue our collective efforts to reduce the spread of the Covid-19 virus," Gall said in a press release. "I anticipate that this state of emergency will likely be further extended in the future."
In Sherwood, the city manager has the authority to extend the Declaration of State of Emergency in one week increments in the event that an emergency continues to exist. That declaration closed services such as the library, senior center and arts center.
