Update on County Offices and Facilities

To help mitigate the spread of COVID-19, we continue to ask that you complete transactions over the phone and online whenever possible. If these approaches will not work for specific problems you are encountering, please call the department providing the service and make an appointment before coming to County facilities. This will help alleviate your frustration. Please note that anyone who arrives at County facilities exhibiting clear signs of illness may be asked to leave the premises. We appreciate everyone’s patience and understanding at this time.
