RESTRICTED PUBLIC ACCESS TO GORDON COUNTY BUILDINGS
March 18, 2020
As Gordon County Officials continue to monitor the evolving situation surrounding the Coronavirus (COVID-19), we believe that it is in the best interest of our employees and the public to implement the following action.
Effective Wednesday, March 18, 2020, as a precaution, and to limit exposure from person to person contact, Gordon County Government will restrict public access to public County buildings and facilities. Gordon County will continue to provide services and encourages the use of online services at gordoncounty.org. All County employees will be required to report daily as normal. As this situation continues to develop, adjustments may be made, if necessary, to facilitate the delivery of services.
Residents needing to conduct business with a County department, after an attempt to use online services, should contact that department by phone or e-mail. Contact information for County departments is available on Gordon County’s website: www.gordoncounty.org.
This action will remain in place for at least the next 14 days and may be extended as necessary.
Again, we urge all residents to remain calm and follow the advice and recommendations of public health professionals which includes:
- Washing your hands regularly with soap for at least 20 seconds
- Avoiding touching eyes, nose or mouth with unwashed hands
- Staying home when you are sick
- Avoiding close contact with people who are sick
- Cleaning/Disinfecting frequently touched objects and surfaces
- Calling your healthcare provider if you experience any flu-like symptoms
If you are scheduled to appear for court, PLEASE contact your lawyer, Public Defender, or the court office that pertains to your case to determine when / where to appear.

As of March 18, 2020, Gordon County still has only 2 confirmed cases of COVID-19 and those citizens have been isolated and treated with appropriate care.
We apologize for any inconvenience, but, we feel this action is necessary to comply with the actions and directives of the President, Governor, and Georgia Supreme Court to maintain social distancing and slow the spread of COVID-19.
