Coronavirus FAQs

On Monday, March 16, 2020 Mayor LeRoy D. Burcroff officially declared a State of Emergency in the City of Romulus in an effort to slow the spread of coronavirus disease 2019 (COVID-19). Due to the City’s unique location with multiple forms of transportation and transient populations, declaring a State of Emergency allows the City access to additional funding and resources to respond to its increased risk to the virus.

The City encourages all residents to continue to follow the preventative measures that have been shared by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC). COVID-19 symptoms include fever, dry cough and shortness of breath. Residents with questions regarding COVID-19 are encouraged to contact the State of Michigan’s coronavirus hotline at 888-535-6136. If residents experience any symptoms, they are highly encouraged to contact a physician for counsel on treatment options and to stay home to protect others.
