COVID-19 guidance released for Grant County offices

Grant County has issued special guidance for operation due to COVID-19, effective today. It is suggested, but not required, that departments close their doors to the public, post contact telephone numbers on the door and see members of the public by appointment only. Find the full guidance below:

(Release from Grant County Human Resources Manager Laurie Wright)

“During the Department Head meeting the following recommendations were made by Judge Myers and Commissioner Hamsher due to Governor Brown’s Executive Order:

1.      It is suggested, but not required, that departments close their doors to the public, post contact telephone numbers on the door and see members of the public by appointment only.

2.      If the office remains open to the public then a sign needs to be posted indicating how many persons can be in the office at a time being helped. I have attached one that can be edited as necessary.

3.      Employees who cannot maintain the 6 foot social distancing requirements in non-public places are required to wear face coverings/masks. Employees and members of the public (unless they are exempt from the requirement) are required to wear face coverings/masks when face to face with public. Commissioner Hamsher is working to clarify exactly what the definition is of non-public places and will send an update once he gets an answer.

4.      Offices should clean frequently touched surfaces with Clorox/Lysol wipes or bleach water and paper towels several times per day or more often as necessary. This will free up some of the Custodian’s time to focus on the common public areas and restrooms.

5.      Please post the attached sign on your office door so visitors to our facilities will be sure to see them.

Further questions should be directed to the County Judge and Commissioners.”
