In the interest of public health and welfare and the safety of our employees the governing board of Codington County, the Codington County Commissioners, advise the following to all County residents:
All County facilities are currently open to the Public. Please refrain from entering the Codington County Courthouse, and all County facilities, if at all possible, until further notice. If you can conduct your County business over the phone, by fax, email, or U.S. mail, please do so. Your cooperation during this unprecedented time is greatly appreciated. We, as the governing board of Codington County, understand that services must continue in Codington County but we also would like to do our duty to control the infectious spread of COVID-19 whenever and however possible. Please call the office with which you need to conduct business, before, entering County facilities, to determine if alternative methods to conduct business can be attained.
If you are feeling ill, have a fever, cough, or shortness of breath, please seek professional medical attention before entering public facilities at the risk of exposing others. We thank you for your understanding as we work through this difficult time.
Codington County, in an attempt to reduce foot traffic through the Courthouse, will be implementing a process where customers will be greeted by County staff on the ground floor near the security check point. Staff will assist customers by providing information as to what services can be achieved remotely, such as by email, phone, fax, etc.
The implementation of these procedures will allow Codington County facilities to remain open to the public and the procedures will begin at 8:00 a.m., Friday, March 20, 2020, and continue until further notice. This is a rapidly changing situation and daily updates will be provided if warranted.
The Board of Codington County Commissioner’s hold your health and safety in the upmost regard as well as the employees of Codington County.
