Message from Mayor Mike Thoms:

It’s an understatement to say that the titled COVID-19 pandemic has escalated rapidly.  There is an overwhelming amount of information regarding the illness and I understand any reactions the public may have.  I want you to know that Rock Island is united as a region with our fellow Quad Cities and surrounding areas.  A Quad Cities COVID-19 Coalition has been established to monitor and communicate all necessary information about COVID-19 and how it’s affecting our community.  I understand the uncertainty of the situation, but ask that we stay calm, stay informed and stay kind to one another Rock Island.  

All the best always – Mayor Mike Thoms
