Prior to entry you must notify a staff member of the Sheriff's Office if any of the following apply to you:
Upon entering the Sheriff's Office please leave space between yourself and others if possible.
• Practice good hygiene – wash your hands with SOAP and WATER! If hand washing is unavailable, use hand sanitizer.
• Avoid touching your face. Yes, it’s super hard not to (and once you realize you shouldn’t do it, you become aware of just how many times you do touch your face!)
• Stop handshaking – use other noncontact methods of greeting or a simple friendly ‘hi!”
• Set regular hand washing reminders on your phone
• Utilize tap and pay or online payment options to limit handling of cash
• Increase ventilation by opening windows if temperatures allow, or adjusting air conditioning
• If possible, transition any non-essential businesses to work-from-home.
• If applicable, sell products online when possible or consider delivery options or an order and pick-up type of option.
• If working in contact with others is essential, try and maintain a 6-foot distance from others at all times.
• Set a timer to remind you to regularly disinfect surfaces frequently touched in your home and workplace areas like doorknobs, tables, countertops, bathroom surfaces and handrails regularly
• Reduce outings and errands to essential-only (i.e. work, groceries, pharmacy) and stay home as much as possible.
If you are feeling sick, call your healthcare provider and tell them that you have or may have COVID-19. This will help the healthcare provider’s office take steps to keep other people from getting infected or exposed.
