In line with Governor Ralph Northam’s Executive Order 61 that eases some of the restrictions put in place during the COVID-19 pandemic, the City of Newport News is adjusting some of its services as we move into Phase I of reopening the state and the city. Keeping the health of city employees and the public in mind, city officials have outlined a plan to move Newport News forward by slowly relaxing restrictions on city services.
All city offices, facilities and buildings remain closed to the public and eligible employees are to continue teleworking or operating on modified schedules. Citizens are encouraged to access services online or contact the City’s 311 Center at 933-2311 or firstname.lastname@example.org. Newport News Waterworks Customer Service Center is also available 926-1000 or email@example.com. All solid waste collections (trash, recycling and bulk waste) are continuing to take place as scheduled.
Adjustments to services for Phase I are as follows.
