We are closely monitoring the daily changes of the Coronavirus (COVID-19) and are taking actions from public health experts, the Center for Disease Control (CDC) and our community leaders. As COVID-19 continues to impact our communities across the world, Parking Services is sensitive to the needs of our community and in response are taking the following temporary actions until further notice:
