The Augusta County Government Center will be re-opening to the public on Monday, June 1. The center, closed since March 20 in compliance with stay-at-home orders and public health restrictions, will be open normal business hours from 8 a.m. – 5 p.m., Monday-Friday. The County strongly encourages business to be conducted remotely, using methods that served the majority of needs during the closure. This includes the use of electronic means or the drive-through and drop-box. We welcome those for whom business must be conducted in person. 

The following safety measures will be in place to help ensure the health of the public and of government employees: 

  • Please wear a mask when entering the building. We ask that those without masks use the drop-box or drive-through window.
  • Only the main door near the flags will be open.
  • Follow entrance and exit signs when visiting public counters inside the building. There will be marked places distanced apart for standing in line.
  • When a Board or Commission is meeting, the Board/Commission, staff, and public will be required to wear a mask.

The public will notice some temporary physical changes inside the building, including: 

  • Gates will be lowered at the counters and outfitted with acrylic sneeze guards.
  • Tables will be placed in front of the counters to help ensure physical distancing.
