County offices remain operational; however, we encourage community members to conduct business by phone, email, or other electronic means. Call first before visiting any office in person—many departments will be working by appointment-only in an effort to limit the number of people within a given space.

Community members who must visit an office in person will be required to wear a face mask while inside the building. If you do not have a mask, one will be provided to you.

We ask our community to be patient and practice good hygiene.

County officials are continuing to monitor the impacts of COVID-19 in our community. Please be advised that conditions may change quickly requiring new or additional changes. Any updates will be provided as soon as possible.
