If you will be on-site during an inspection, remember to do the following:

  • Confirm everyone in the home is in good health
    • If someone is in quarantine due to exposure or a positive COVID test, the inspection will have to be scheduled after the quarantine time is over
  • Please minimize the number of people in the home at the time of the inspection
  • If you need to interact with the inspector, wear a mask

Thank you for your help and cooperation as we work to keep everyone safe. To learn more about doing business with the City during this challenging time and to stay updated on City announcements, visit
