Davison County taking further steps against spread of COVID-19 virus

In the interest of public health and welfare and the safety of our employees the governing board of Davison County, the Davison County Commissioners, advise the following to all County residents:

All County facilities are here to serve the Public. In the interest of public health, Davison County will be conducting business primarily by phone, by fax, email, or U.S. mail.  County offices will accept appointments for in-person business.  Please call and make an appointment if you prefer an in-person visit.  Your cooperation during this unprecedented time is greatly appreciated.  The Davison County Commission understands that public services must continue; however, we must be diligent in our duty to control the transmission of COVID-19.  Please call the office with which you need to conduct business before entering County facilities. Please cooperate with County staff to ascertain reasonable, alternative methods to conduct business other than in-person meetings.

In order to assurer continuing service to the public, even in the event of a corona virus exposure in a County facility, we are keeping as much staff “in reserve” as possible.  This is a unique and unprecedented situation, so we ask for your patience and understanding that County business may take more time than usual due to limited staffing.

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.  IT IS EVERY CITIZENS’ DUTY TO PROTECT OTHERS FROM TRANSMISSABLE DISEASES.

Davison County is implementing a process where customers can find most forms needed on-line or in the Courthouse lobby.  Please see our web site www.davisoncounty.org.  There are drop boxes for each office.

These procedures are effective at 8:00 a.m., Monday, March 23, 2020, and will continue until further notice.  This is a rapidly changing situation and daily updates will be provided if warranted.

The Davison County Board of Commissioner’s hold your health and safety in the highest regard and that is the driving motivation behind this policy.

Auditor/Welfare Assistance – 995-8608; Treasurer – 995-8617; Register of Deeds – 995-8616; Director of Equalization – 995-8613; Emergency Management/Planning & Zoning – 995-8640; Veteran’s Service Office – 995-8619; Highway Department – 995-8625; Sheriff – 995-8630; States Attorney – 995-8627.  If you’re not sure who to call, you may call 995-8608 and the auditor will try to assist you.
