Safety a priority as county offices set to reopen

In continuing its mission of providing important services to residents, Weld County Government will begin gradually reopening its offices to the public beginning Monday, May 4. As the process of reopening occurs, the public can expect some changes implemented to protect both themselves and county employees.

“While our offices have been closed to the public, our departments have continued to assist our residents electronically or over the phone,” Weld County Commissioner Chair Mike Freeman said. "That will continue during our gradual reopening, but we’re also looking forward to assisting the public in person again. We want people to know that we’ve taken several steps across our departments to ensure we serve them in a manner consistent with COVID-19 best practice guidelines.”

Each Weld County department has established procedures for reopening that have been reviewed by the Board of Commissioners. These procedures emphasize continued physical distancing, limit the number of people in a building at any one time, and follow other safety guidelines established by the Centers for Disease Control (CDC). The procedures for each department can be found at https://www.weldgov.com/newsroom/county_building_hours_starting_5_4 Specific procedures for the Weld County Administration Building, Clerk and Recorder’s Office – Motor Vehicles and Department of Human Services (DHS) are outlined below:
