County announces expanded access for most departments

EL CENTRO — Nearly all Imperial County government offices will reopen for limited walk-up service starting today, according to a news release.

While several county offices have remained open during the pandemic, the expanded reopening is due to the rapid decrease of COVID-19 cases and restrictions lifted throughout the state.

Safety protocols will be required when visiting and all visitors, including those who are fully vaccinated, will be required to wear masks inside county facilities. Offices will initially reopen with limited capacity and each department will maintain its own schedule. These plans are subject to change depending on state guidelines and local health orders.

In the release, the county said it will do its best to continue to keep the public informed of any changes.

The county said all departmental information provided is subject to change. Residents are urged to visit county department websites, or call the numbers provided for assistance on how to complete requests online, over the phone or through the mail.
