County Covid-19 Updates

Measures are in place throughout County government in an effort to impede the spread of the virus.
The County is encouraging all employees to wash their hands (with soap) regularly for at least 20 seconds. If soap is not available, we recommend hand sanitizer with at least 60% alcohol. The County is also encouraging all employees to cough into a tissue or their elbow to prevent hand contamination.
For up-to-date information on the health situation, you can find more information at the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention website at the coronavirus.gov link on this alert.
If there are substantive changes in County policy, that news will be shared via the media and the Board of Commissioners Facebook page.
