COVID-19 IMPACTS TO CITY OF MARQUETTE OPERATIONS
As the story of the coronavirus (COVID-19) continues to evolve, the City of Marquette’s top priority remains the health, safety and welfare of residents in the community. The City is committed to maintaining a safe and healthy environment for residents, and the administration is currently monitoring the situation, partnering with Marquette County Emergency personnel and with state and local health officials on response efforts. With these priorities in mind, and while the landscape will certainly continue to shift, the City is taking the following actions at this time and will re-evaluate in the coming weeks.
Beginning Monday, March 16, Lakeview Arena and the Baraga Gym will be closed to the public.
All Lakeview Arena public programming, open skate and drop-in sessions are canceled for the remainder of the ice season, though previously scheduled private ice rentals will be honored through March 20. Arena tenants, including Superior Hockey, the Superior Watershed Partnership, the Noquemanon Trail Network, and Marquette Junior Hockey, will operate at their discretion, and should be contacted directly for further information.
All upcoming City Arts and Culture programming has been canceled.
Also beginning March 16, all non-essential Senior Center programming is canceled. This includes, but may not be limited to, exercise classes, congregate meals, bridge, cribbage, senior arts and Silver Sampler programs. The Marquette Senior center will remain open for social work, foot care and tax services and homemaking services will continue at this time.
