COVID-19 


Effective April 12, 2021 County Facilities will reopen to the public. Please avoid entering facilities if you have a cough or fever. Non-medical face coverings worn over the nose and mouth are required in all County facilities. Patrons to all County facilities may be limited in number for the purpose of conducting County or Court business based on the business purpose and facility size. You may be asked to wait outside. County Staff appreciates the public's patience and understanding as they work through these new procedures. These times are undoubtedly challenging, but staff is excited to once again be able to see the public and serve our community members in person. Click here for more information regarding facility specific guidance and more information.
