Sonoma County offices to reopen for in-person service on April 19

Press Release, County of Sonoma , April 16, 2021

Most Sonoma County government offices will reopen for limited walk-up service starting on Monday,  April 19.

While several county offices have remained open during the pandemic, the expanded reopening is due to the rapid decrease of COVID-19 cases and the county move to the orange tier of the state’s Blueprint for a Safer Economy.

In the second, least restrictive orange tier, workers may begin to return to offices, although remote work is still encouraged.

“We are excited to welcome the public back to our offices, now that it is safer for in-person work,” said Sheryl Bratton, Sonoma County administrator. “During the pandemic, our employees never stopped working for our residents. Many have just done our jobs remotely while others were working on-site filling essential functions. We look forward to seeing people again — mask to mask.”

Safety protocols will be required when visiting government offices. Face coverings will be mandatory, and social distancing will be followed.

Offices will initially reopen with limited hours, and each department will maintain its own schedule.
