COVID-19: Protecting the Public and Employees as County Offices Reopen
County of Lake Worksite Prevention Protocol
With COVID-19 still a significant concern in our region, County Departments are seeking to provide comprehensive services in the safest possible manner. In-person services are now permissible under the Health Orders, provided social distancing and other precautions are strictly observed, but we are happy to accommodate customers that still prefer to access services without an in-person visit.
Most County offices reopened to the public Monday-Thursday, 8am-5pm, as an enhancement of services that have been available remotely throughout the COVID-19 pandemic. Offices are also now open Fridays in weeks that include one Monday or midweek Holiday.
Like all businesses that have reopened in Lake County, County Departments self-certified they are taking appropriate safety measures. Departmental certifications are posted at County offices, and each certification form includes contact information, if you wish to submit a complaint.
Health-focused complaints regarding any Lake County business, including County Departments, may also be submitted to: [email protected].
County Administrative Officer, Carol Huchingson, and Court Executive Officer, Krista LeVier, recently estimated 350-400 people passed through security at the County Courthouse during a typical pre-COVID-19 week.
Those at elevated risk of severe COVID-19 complications may wish to reach out to a County Department, and arrange for service without physically visiting the Courthouse or another County facility.
