UPDATE 3/26/2020

Luverne now has a confirmed case of COVID-19 Virus. The City of Luverne has been and will continue to help our citizens deal with the many issues that are related to this illness.

First and foremost, we want to do everything we can do to keep our citizens safe. There have been numerous recommendations and guidelines issued by State and Federal Authorities. If you have not already done so you should make yourself familiar with those. One of the best sources of information is the Centers for Disease Control. The link to their COVID-19 site is One of the most important things we all can do is to practice social distancing. That means keeping a distance between yourself and any other person of a least 6 feet. This is not only for the purposes of protecting yourself but also for the purpose of protecting others. While your risk of catching the virus may be low and the effects of the virus on you may be minimal, you could very easily come into contact with someone that is very vulnerable to the disease and in a high-risk category. For that reason, please be considerate of others and keep your distance.

Testing for the COVID-19 Virus and for the flu is available. The testing can be done without having to get out of your vehicle. If you have the symptoms for the illness, do no go to the emergency room or your doctor's office. Rather, call and if appropriate they will schedule the testing. The testing has been set up outside the Crenshaw Community Hospital and as | have stated can be done while you are in your vehicle. If you have any questions about whether you should be tested contact your regular physician or the Crenshaw Community Hospital at 334-335-1146.

The City of Luverne will do everything possible to keep essential city functions available. City Hall will be available 8am-9am Mon-Fri for questions.  However, no one will be allowed inside the office during that time.  Any utility bills should be paid by using the drop box directly outside the City Clerk's office or website at Household trash will continue to be collected on your normal day. Business trash will be collected as normal or as conditions require.  Debris will not be collected until further notice.  Any power or water outages should be reported to 334-335-4485.  Non-emergency utility needs can be handled by calling 334-335-3741 during the hours of 8am-9am Mon-Fri.  All activities at Turner park have been canceled including the playground and walking trail.
