Lowndes County officials published a statement in response to the increase in Covid-19 cases, stating that although they are not closing facilities to the public, they are limiting access.
OFFICIAL STATEMENT 12-30:
“In response to a recent sharp rise in the number of COVID-19 cases, Lowndes County will not be closing offices but access to some county buildings/offices will be limited during the month of January.
Citizens that can conduct business with county offices via email or phone are encouraged to do so. In the event an in-person meeting is required, please wear a mask and respect social distancing protocols. Drive-thru, payment drop-off boxes and payment windows will remain open and operational. Most offices also offer online or pay by phone options that allow citizens to conduct business virtually. Please take advantage of these contactless options when able to do so.
Citizens that are scheduled for court, should reach out to their court point of contact for any scheduling changes that might occur. In the event you remain scheduled for court, please do not bring anyone to court that is not necessary. In addition, do not assume that court has been cancelled as a result of this statement. Those with court dates are responsible for coordinating with a court representative for details.
