County Operations Update

For the upcoming weeks, Surry County Government prefers that the public call or email staff for any County-related business, but if they must come in person, staff will be disinfecting public areas and work spaces. Contact information for staff is listed on the County website at<>.

Surry County departments are sanitizing their work spaces and public places with sanitizing wipes and sanitizing spray, are making hand sanitizer available and are following recommended precautions from the State and CDC.

Surry County plans to hold Board of County Commissioners meetings as scheduled, as required by the North Carolina General Statutes, but the Easter Egg Hunt scheduled for March 28 has been cancelled. If modifications to Board meetings need to be made, Surry County will announce that to the media and public. Staff is in the process of evaluating other County-related mass gatherings for possible cancellation or postponement. Management is also working with departments on any adjusted staffing that may be needed.

Press releases will be sent out when decisions are made about other events.
