The Dunwoody Police Department and City of Dunwoody government will continue operations while City Hall is closed to the public as a precaution.

Dunwoody, GA – March 14, 2020 – In an abundance of caution related to COVID-19, Dunwoody City Hall will be closed to the public until March 30 to protect staff and visitors to the building. Police and city operations will continue during this time.

“Our priority is to keep everyone safe and healthy. I’m grateful for the preparation by staff to be ready to telework,” said Dunwoody Mayor Lynn Deutsch. “Dunwoody’s greatest strength is our community, and I know that working together we can make everyone feel supported during these uncertain times.”

Even though City Hall will be closed, city government remains open for business with non-essential staff working remotely. The City has several online tools available to residents, businesses and visitors.
