County buildings

We offer select services by phone, email, fax, or by appointment.

When you visit county buildings

  • All visitors to county facilities who are not fully vaccinated are required to wear face coverings.
  • Fully vaccinated people do not have to wear face coverings in county buildings, but are welcome to do so.
  • Fully vaccinated is defined as 14 days after the last dose in a person's vaccine series. Children under 5 are exempt from this requirement.
  • Some buildings continue to have face covering requirements for visitors, regardless of vaccination status.
  • We ask that visitors who have tested positive for COVID-19 or who are experiencing COVID-19 symptoms not enter county facilities.
