Update on County Offices and Facilities

Most County offices are open for business; but a few are providing limited public services or services by appointment only. In addition, many public counters are open including our Libraries, which are now fully open.

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.

The County is following Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) guidelines as it reopens its offices. For more information, look at our Reopening Toolkit.

For more information on the COVID-19 pandemic, and the County’s response, visit ReadySLO.org.
