Fulton County offices to reopen

JOHNSTOWN — Fulton County government has developed a county-level re-opening plan to transition to full operations over the next couple weeks, following implementation of limited operations due to the COVID-19 virus pandemic, according to a news release from Board of Supervisors Administrative Officer Jon Stead.

The plan has been tailored to each county department in accordance with guidelines announced by Gov. Andrew Cuomo, based upon a regional approach.

In anticipation of re-opening, the Fulton County COVID-19 Task Force and county department heads have made logistical changes to county government offices that will ensure safety for the public and employees.

Physical renovations within customer service areas and altered work-flow have been the main focus to promote social-distancing and prevent spread of the virus. County officials encourage all visitors to county facilities to wear a face covering and follow all new signage that will be in place. In addition, the public is urged to use mail, email and drop-box options when available.

In accordance with Cuomo’s executive orders, local Departments of Motor Vehicles must remain closed until June 8. Therefore, the main county office building located at 223 W. Main St., which includes the local DMV, will remain closed until the June 8 opening. Other county office buildings will open for public walk-in access effective Monday.
