It’s back to public business this coming Monday for all Fayette County, Peachtree City and Fayetteville government offices as they re-open their doors to the public following a closure for pandemic mitigation for the past few weeks.
The re-opening of Fayette County government offices on May 18 will come with the continuation of social distancing and with temperatures taken for those entering county buildings.
Fayette County Clerk Tameca White said staff will continue to report to work, and will work under the telework plan. Vulnerable and medically-fragile employees will be required to continue to telework to keep exposure to a minimum.
In an effort to remain consistent with state and federal guidance and mitigate transmission of COVID-19 virus, Fayette County has temporarily updated its procedures as follows:
- Staff will be on-site to take temperatures of persons entering county buildings. If deemed to have an elevated temperature of 100.4 degrees Fahrenheit or greater, visitors will be encouraged to seek medical attention and contact the county’s website for information. Those with elevated temperatures as described will not be allowed to enter the building.
- Each county department will implement social distancing measures and asks everyone to adhere to the procedures accordantly.
“The goal of the Fayette County Board of Commissioners is for all citizens to remain healthy and safe. We take these precautions to mitigate the spread of COVID-19 from person-to-person, and we encourage all to continue to practice proper hand washing protocols, social distancing and cleaning and disinfecting surfaces,” White said.
We also ask our residents to continue to contact us via phone, email, or our website, as an alternate option, said White.
Contact information for staff is available on the website, www.fayettecountyga.gov when you navigate to the desired department on the left of the website or by calling 770-305-5400 or 770-305-5200.
Peachtree City’s building facilities will reopen on Monday, May 18. Social distancing limitations remain in effect, so there will be limitations on how many people can enter at a time.
