Lake County Commissioners on Tuesday adopted a plan of action for the county’s response to the COVID-19 public health emergency.  At this time, Lake County offices are open and available to provide essential services to the public. But the county is taking steps to reduce their in-person contact with the public.  Lake County Commissioners ask that if your need isn’t urgent or if you are feeling ill, to consider delaying your business, or call or e-mail the county office prior to visiting to see if the business you need to complete can be done online, by e-mail, or over the phone.  Commissioners also suggest scheduling an appointment with the county office as this may minimize the time that is required for it.  

Some county departments are further modifying their operations.  The County Extension Office will not allow face-to-face meetings with clients, and all 4-H meetings and events are canceled or postponed through at least April 1st.  Commercial pesticide exams will not be offered until further notice. Also, county veterans in need of assistance are encouraged to call the Veteran Services Officer to discuss what may be provided remotely.

Lake County has its operation plan posted on its website, along with the contact information for each of the county departments.
