Public access to Kennesaw City Hall resumed Monday with a few procedures for visitors to follow before entering the building.

All guests will have their temperatures checked before entering City Hall. A single access point, with separate doors for entering and exiting, will be set up to encourage social distancing, the city said.

Anyone who visits City Hall is encouraged to wear masks or other personal protective equipment. The city also strongly encourages anyone who has or has been exposed to someone experiencing COVID-19 symptoms, including a temperature of over 100.4 degrees Fahrenheit, shortness of breath or cough, to stay home.

Building Services, Planning & Zoning, Economic Development, City Clerk and Public Works department staff will be available for in-person meetings by appointment only, the city said. Kennesaw still recommends the public to use its website, drop box or phone numbers for city-related services.

The city, on Tuesday, will open Smith-Gilbert Gardens, which will be open from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. Tuesday through Saturday. Anyone who wants to visit will need to purchase tickets online before visiting. The Hiram Butler House and the Gift Shop are closed, and public events, classes and programs are canceled until further notice.

Municipal Court, the Ben Robertson Community Center and the Southern Museum of Civil War & Locomotive History will remain closed. You can learn more about Kennesaw's operations during the COVID-19 pandemic by visiting its website.
