The meeting will review circumstances of the local coronavirus emergency response, including:

1.  A review of the nature of the emergency.
2.  A briefing by the City Manager or staff on the actions taken by the City of Staunton already and likely to be taken regarding the emergency, consistent with the Declaration of Local Emergency issued by the City Manager on March 16.
3.   A review of prior communications and future communications regarding the emergency, as part of addressing the emergency.

5.  Other matters from the City Manager or Council members related to addressing the emergency.
