At that time the Commission has made the decision to remain closed with entry to the public by appointment only. The Commission will revisit the decision at the first meeting in February, 2021 as to whether or not we remain closed. We will notify you when we plan to reopen once we know for sure when that will be. The Public will be encouraged to conduct business by appointment/Phone/Drop box/or Email and will be required to wear a mask when entering the building.
**To the Residents of Somerset County:**
The County of Somerset has been monitoring the COVID-19 virus and its potential impact in our community. After serious consideration and in consultation with the Commissioners, we will be making some adjustments in the way the County services are provided. These will be evaluated on an ongoing basis and changes will be made as information and circumstances change. Our goal is to ensure the safety of our employees and our residents in the most responsible ways possible. We apologize for the inconveniences that these measures will cause. It is important to avoid the need to shut down entirely through unintended exposure to the virus. We strongly encourage residents to practice social distancing and masking to avoid potential contact but we also encourage everyone to call and check on neighbors, friends, and family to avoid social isolation. We are erring on the side of caution in order to do our best to slow the spread of this virus. Sincerely,
