Media Release – Daviess County’s Commitment To Service During COVID-19

In an effort to take precautionary measures in the prevention and spread of the Coronavirus (COVID-19), Daviess County is restricting access to its facilities. Daviess County intends to follow the Center for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) guidelines. We request all county boards, commissions and agencies to follow suit. As CDC guidelines change, the County will adhere.

The County recognizes that the impact of a potential outbreak will affect county operations in a variety of ways and we recognize the special duty to assist the public. During a community emergency, county employees’ responsibility to serve, maintain vital services and take protective measures for themselves and their community is critical and will continue during this time.

To ensure continuity of government, as well as its commitment to public safety, the County remains committed to serving its citizens, carrying out critical functions and prioritizing support functions. We request residents to conduct all county business electronically or by phone during the upcoming weeks.

The Daviess County Courthouse will remain open, however, residents needing to conduct business should call 270-685-8424 or email jwarren@daviessky.org to determine how to best handle specific processes.  This line is not available for questions related to COVID-19.  *See below for COVID-19 information and updates.
