The City of Rochester Hills Takes Precautionary Measures Against COVID-19

The City of Rochester Hills’ first priority is always the health, safety, and welfare of residents, businesses, visitors and its team members.

Rochester Hills has proactively taken steps to prevent the further spread of the coronavirus (COVID-19) throughout the city, including issuing a State of Emergency last week. Effective Monday, March 16, 2020 the Rochester Hills City Hall, the Rochester Hills Department of Public Services Building, and the Rochester Hills Museum on Van Hoosen Farm will be closed to the public until March 31.  The Mayor will provide an update on the City’s public hours and status beginning April 1, 2020 by the end of March.

To minimize the public’s and our employees’ exposure to the coronavirus, all Parks & Museum classes and programs are canceled or postponed effective March 16 through March 31. However, all city parks will remain open to the public during this time.

Community members can still conduct city business online, via phone and through the City’s drop box in front of City Hall. Residents are encouraged to use the City’s website payment portal option for making payments and reporting concerns.

The Clerk’s Office is suspending Passport Application Acceptance Services and Solicitation Licenses for 30 days, starting March 16 through April 15. All birth and death records can be applied for online.

Oakland County Sheriff’s Office deputies, the Rochester Hills Fire Department and Rochester Hills Department of Public Services will continue to respond to calls. In the event of an emergency, continue to call 9-1-1.

City Council meetings will continue as scheduled. As always, residents will be able to view our City Council meetings online or via RHTV. The City’s Planning Commission meeting scheduled for March 17 will also continue as scheduled. News about the City’s meetings and events will be available on
