Coronavirus (COVID-19) Information and Updates
The City of Papillion is taking steps to slow down the spread of coronavirus, also known as COVID-19, and to protect vulnerable populations in our community.
The City has taken the following temporary measures to strategically protect vulnerable populations and reduce close contact that could spread the virus:
- Papillion City Council meetings will now be held via online video conference. Click here for full details.

- Sump Memorial Library is closed until further notice. The outside book drop is also closed. Please keep your library materials until further notice. No fines will be accrued during this time.
- Playground equipment, ballfields, courts and other equipment throughout City parks is closed until further notice. Parks, trails and recreation areas remain open at this time. Public restrooms in all City parks, including Walnut Creek and Prairie Queen recreation areas, have been closed. The Walnut Creek Recreation Area Campground is closed until further notice.
- The Papillion Police Department and Papillion Fire Department’s four stations are also closed to non-essential personnel, such as visitors and family, to reduce the risk of exposure to department members.
- Papillion City Hall is closed to the public. Meetings with members of the public will be by appointment only. Residents are encouraged to sign up for online bill payment for water and sewer bills or pay by mail.

- If you interact with our Police and Fire Departments and you have symptoms, please make sure they are aware. (Sarpy 911 is also asking callers about possible exposure and symptoms.)

Coronavirus (COVID-19) Resources
For those who are visiting our City facilities and interacting with staff, please follow CDC recommendations:
- Stay home if you are sick. Contact your primary care doctor first for direction (as long as you aren’t in immediate health crisis).
- Wash your hands often, with soap and water, for at least 20 seconds (especially after using the bathroom, before eating, and after blowing your nose, coughing or sneezing).
- Avoid touching your eyes, nose, and mouth — especially after touching commonly used items like handrails, elevator buttons and doorknobs.
- Carry hand sanitizer in your purse or pockets.
- Consider foregoing handshakes and exchanging business cards for the time being.
- Practice coughing and sneezing hygiene: Cover your cough or sneeze with a tissue (or your elbow), then throw the tissue in the trash (not in your bag or pocket).
