Doing Business with Douglas County Government During COVID-19 Health Emergency
Effective 8:00 a.m. Monday, June 1, 2020, Douglas County’s buildings will be open to the general public. The buildings had been open on a minimal basis in an effort to reduce the rate of COVID-19 transmission and to protect citizens and employees of Douglas County.
Citizens are strongly encouraged to continue to do as much business as possible by telephone or e-mail. Any person experiencing any symptoms of COVID-19 must not enter the County’s buildings. Face masks/coverings are required, with some exceptions, for any member of the general public entering the County’s buildings. Hand sanitizing stations are set up inside the doors. Members of the public are also strongly encouraged to use those stations immediately upon entering the County’s buildings. Social distancing is in effect and all people in the County’s buildings need to maintain a six-foot distance from one another. These protocols are essential to mitigate the impact of coronavirus and protect the health of the public and our employees.
Two entrances to the Courthouse and one entrance to the Government Center will be open for citizens that require in-house services. The east entrance to the Courthouse off of Cumming Avenue, the west entrance to the Courthouse off Hammond Avenue, and the main door of the Government Center, 1316 North 14th Street, will be the only doors open to the public.
