COVID-19 Precautions

COVID-19 picture

Daggett County is taking proactive steps to protect its employees and its citizens from possible exposure to COVID-19. It is the goal of the county to provide essential services online or over the phone to ensure the safety of our employees and citizens.

At present, there are no confirmed cases of COVID-19 in the county. County officials remain in constant contact with the TriCounty Health Department for the most updated information and are following the situation closely.

The following changes have been made as part of the county’s efforts to reduce potential exposure to COVID-19:

  • Effective immediately, all meetings of the Daggett County Commission will take place electronically until further notice. Information about how to watch and/or participate in those meetings will be provided with the agenda for the meeting.
  • Effective Friday, March 20, 2020, all offices in the Daggett County Administration Building and Courthouse, including the state Division of Motor Vehicles and 8th District Court, will be accessible to the public under modified procedures.

The modified procedures are as follows:

  • The administration building will remain unlocked during regular business hours.
  • Those who need to conduct business in-person must call the office with which you have business in advance and schedule an appointment. Please let us know if you will need any accommodations or assistance to enter the building.
  • When you arrive for your scheduled appointment, stop at the table in the foyer of the building.
  • The office with which you have an appointment will send an employee out to help you.
  • Once your business is concluded, immediately exit the building for your safety and the safety of county employees.

These procedures are being implemented to help the county comply with the social distancing guidelines recommended by the president, the governor, and public health officials at the federal, state and local level.

County employees remain available to assist citizens over the phone. Citizens can also make payments online at www.daggettcounty.org/385/Online-Payments.
