To: Citizens of Lawrence CountyFrom: Lawrence County CommissionDate: March 20, 2020Re: COUNTY OFFICES TO REDUCE PUBLIC FOOT TRAFFICFOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE1. Effective March 23, 2020, in order to protect the public, our employees, and to lessen the transmission of the COVID-19 virus, we have made the decision to close our buildings (excluding the Courthouse) to the general public until further notice. However, our offices will remain manning levels during regular business hours, and we are committed to providing services to our fellow citizens.2. Whenever possible, we are asking that you utilize phone, web and mail services to conduct business. In the event you need to come to our offices to do business, we ask that you please call ahead and make an appointment with the office in question. Someone will meet you at the door, and escort you to an area designated for this purpose. They will handle your needs, and then escort you from the facility.3. The phone numbers for each office can be located on our website at the following link: https://www.lawrence.sd.us/Directory.aspx. Our phone numbers will also be pasted on a sheet on the main doors of our Administrative Annex.4. We understand that this change to our regular operations will be inconvenient for all involved. But, we ask that you please make this adjustment with us. We will be monitoring the situation very closely, and will resume regular operations as soon as it is recommended.5. As always, if you require any special accommodations, please let us know and we will do our very best to assist you.6. Please check our website, Facebook, and Twitter often for further updates, as conditions are changing rapidly, and we’re doing our best to adjust our processes based on those changes• Website: https://www.lawrence.sd.us/• Facebook: @lawrencecountysd• Twitter: @lawrencecosd7.
