Message From County Administrator

Published:  June 1, 2020

Dear County Employees, 

After nearly three months since the Public Health Officer declared a local health emergency, the COVID-19 emergency continues to be a very fluid situation.  The County’s emergency response planning and guidance is continually evolving based on key health indicators and new information. I want to take a moment to thank you for your dedication and commitment for keeping the County functioning while caring for family, friends, and neighbors through these challenging times. 

County Response Updates  

As of today, 26,536 ​coronavirus tests have been completed in the County. Of these, 564 cases have confirmed positive, of which 256 are active, 304 recovered, and four resulted in deaths. For detailed up to date information, please visit the County’s COVID-19 Case Data webpage.  

Due to the high volume of COVID-19 cases, the Department of Health Services is expanding the enhanced COVID-19 Contact Tracing project by increasing its pool of contact tracers.  Contact tracing is a systematic process of interviewing people who have been exposed to an individual who tests positive for coronavirus and determining the need for quarantine to limit the spread of the virus in our community. The County is seeking contact tracers to assist with this critical endeavor, which is necessary to safely reopen our community.   

As with all local emergencies or disasters, you may be asked to perform work outside the normal scope of your duties to help support fulfill a number of disaster service worker (DSW) assignments. DSW assignments are critical to carry out the emergency response mission.  Please stay in close contact with your supervisor and/or manager for more information as assignments open.

As we continue to contend with this relentless virus, I encourage us all to do our best to try to reduce the risk of infection and spread. Please continue to follow public health safety and preventive measures to protect yourselves, your family and our community from COVID-19. 

Stay strong,

Sheryl Bratton
County Administrator
