NOTICES REGARDING THE COVID-19 VIRUS

Update May 27, 2020: With the recent extension of the Governor’s Stay Home order until June 12, the East Tawas City Park is still not allowed to accommodate transient (short-term) camping.  We will, however, remain open for seasonal, long term camping.  As our public restrooms and showers are not able to be open at this time, all camping units must be self-contained.  Under the Governor’s order, we are also able to accommodate “essential workers” for short term camping or for however long they need accommodation.  We sincerely hope that the Governor lifts her Stay Home order on June 12 and that transient camping will once again be allowed at that time.

As you all know, we are in the middle of a worldwide health pandemic unlike anything most of us have faced in our lifetimes. The City of East Tawas and the East Tawas City Park are committed to the health of our residents and visitors and are taking precautions to mitigate the spread of the COVID-19 virus with guidance from state and county health officials.  These measures will not impact critical services such as drinking water, police, fire, emergency operations, or waste collection; however some City services have been modified.

During the next few weeks, our City Day Parks will continue to remain open for your use. However, the play structures in all parks are closed and have been fenced off. We ask that you practice social distancing while enjoying our parks and other open spaces and do your best to remain at least ten (10) feet away from others.

While we understand the City’s efforts to slow the spread of COVID-19 may cause some frustrations, we are committed to keeping our employees and the public safe while still delivering City services. We will continue to monitor this rapidly evolving situation in consultation with health officials to determine if further changes to operations are needed.  We appreciate your understanding and cooperation during this time.  If you have any questions, please contact City hall at 989-362-6161 or by email at This email address is being protected from spambots.
