Prince George County government buildings will remain closed to the public for at least one more month, according to County Administrator Percy Ashcraft.
With new cases still surfacing and vaccine distribution running slower than expected, Ashcraft feels it is important to keep all County buildings closed to the public with two exceptions. Parks & Recreation will continue its classes offered during the day, and the fitness center on Old Stage Road will be open by appointment.
“We don’t want to relax our precautions too soon,” Ashcraft said. “There is certainly progress being made in battling this pandemic, but our focus is still to keep people safe. The best way is to continue the reduction of the flow of people in and out of our buildings.”
Ashcraft is encouraging the public to continue to contact the County office they might need to do business with by telephone or email during this time of closure.
Ashcraft said that members of the public will be allowed to attend all public meetings scheduled for the remainder of February and March, but under the special guidelines established months ago. All major meetings can also be seen online through Zoom and You Tube Live.
The announcement regarding the closure does not apply to the court system or court proceedings.
The Circuit Clerk’s office will be open all business days to the public in the County Courthouse, but will limit the number of customers to two at the front counter at one time and three will be allowed in the Record Room at one time.
Please contact County Administration at (804) 722-8600 with any general question or concern. Otherwise, contact the individual office to conduct business.
