New Release-MESSAGE FROM BROADWATER COUNTY COMMISSIONERS
Dear Broadwater County Citizens,
The Broadwater County Commission unanimously approved a plan to address the recent COVID outbreak in the courthouse.
We have one confirmed positive case and through contact tracing over a dozen employees are in quarantine for 14 days. Measures are in place to keep the virus from spreading to other county offices, staff, or to the public. At this time, it is concentrated in four offices, which means there will be visible impacts to services.
This is temporary.
The Commission has implemented a plan to continue county work.
The courthouse will be locked. You may call or email and make an appointment with any office for the service you need. Please limit this to immediate work. County staff will escort you in and out of the building. You must wear a mask to enter. Staff will too.
Certified election judges are available to take your ballot. Just knock on the door, you may drop it in the ballot box. You must wear a mask as the judges will be.
Commission meetings will resume per the spring 2020 process that followed COVID requirements:
• Attendance will be limited to those with an agenda item, attendees must wear masks, and socially distance with 6' spacing at least.
• Meetings will continue to be live-streamed, public comment is welcome via phone, written communication, through live-stream, or in person with an appointment.
• Non-emergent subjects of public interest will be postponed until meetings can be fully opened to the public again.
County advisory board meetings will be postponed for the time being, unless they have an immediate need that must be addressed.
We are living history. We will get through this.
Broadwater County Commission
