Customers must wear masks for entry into building; capacity rules will be followed
DEARBORN – The city of Dearborn is planning to reopen the Dearborn Administrative Center to the public on June 15, with safety provisions in place.
The intent is for the DAC to be open to the public 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. on Mondays through Thursdays, and remain closed to the public on Fridays.
The City is also reviewing opportunities for additional Recreation facilities to reopen. It is anticipated that more information will be available by June 11 regarding splash pads, playgrounds, and other facilities of high public interest, as well as the possibilities of limited exercise classes offered outdoors at the Ford Community & Performing Arts Center.
Customers planning on coming to the DAC beginning June 15 need to know that they may be able to access services online instead or through alternative means. These include paying city bills, requesting a building permit or a certificate of occupancy for a home for sale, obtaining a garage sale permit, and other activities.

The city plans on implementing the following measures for customers who do feel they need to enter the DAC beginning June 15:
• Masks are required for entry into the building and for service.
• Customers will have their temperature taken before entry.
• Customers will be asked to line up at six-foot distances while waiting for entry.
• Only a limited number of customers will be allowed inside at one time, based on capacity to observe the six-foot distance rule.
• Hand sanitizers will be available .
The city will post updates on www.cityofdearborn.org, on City of Dearborn Government Facebook and other social media, and via the news media.
Before more services become available, and more facilities open, the city is finalizing its careful plan to protect the safety and health of employees and residents. The plan has been in development for some time, but the governor’s June 1 decision to rescind the “Stay Home, Stay Safe” order was earlier than expected.
“We are proceeding with care to ensure when we reopen buildings, and reinstate more city services, we are prioritizing your health,” Mayor John O’Reilly Jr. said. “We are here to serve you for the long term, and to do so effectively, we must first give you and our employees the tools and protocols to stay safe for the long term.”
