During this time of emergency, guidance from state and federal authorities requires that county departments provide services in ways that are not typical. Until further notice, the county will be implementing social distancing practices to help slow down the spread of COVID-19. During these times you may see county employees wearing protective equipment like gloves and other gear they do not normally wear. They may also ask you to wait outside a room or facility before entering, and may request that they work with you via phone or online. Please know that these preventive measures are not personal and we are only trying to follow expert advice to keep our community healthy. Please see the CDC website for more details on the practices we will be implementing during this time.
Here is guidance for businesses from CDPH: https://www.labor.ca.gov/coronavirus2019/
