WEST LAFAYETTE, Ind. (WLFI) -- West Lafayette Mayor John Dennis said the city's residents are a big part of helping curb the spread of COVID-19.
In a conversation with News 18 Dennis said they have been very proactive and cooperative during the pandemic.
The city's clerk Sana Booker has been calling hundreds of residents making sure they are doing OK.
Dennis said the city is prepared in case another wave of COVID-19 makes its way to West Lafayette.
He said it's been a learning experience.
"I think for all of us, it will make us all aware of what we do and how we do it," said Mayor Dennis. "Our contacts with people. Think about all the things we do when we have mass gatherings. That might look a little bit different."
Dennis said during the pandemic the biggest hit to the city was when Purdue students left.
He said they make up around half the population and greatly impact the economy.
