Friday, May 1, 2020 the Commission adopted a revision to 2020-96a that will extend the closure of some buildings to the public and non-essential staff until, June 1, 2020. Certain parts of the County, such as Parks & Recreation, will begin to open earlier. The timeline adopted allows each County office an opportunity to make a plan for transitioning limited staff back to offices, and it also allows the County to continue installing Plexiglass barriers and obtaining PPE supplies. It is important for us to comply with the Clay County Public Health Center orders regarding social distancing and occupancy.
