MEDIA RELEASE: STATEMENT FROM ALLEGANY COUNTY BOARD OF COUNTY COMMISSIONERS REGARDING THE CORONAVIRUS
The dedicated professionals at our county’s health department are leading the community’s response and will continue to do so. The staff is meeting with their counterparts in various state and local level agencies to ensure that our message is accurate and up to date. We are making efforts to ensure that both our young people and aging populations know the facts about this virus and how to best combat it. Allegany County Government is taking the following steps in light of the spread of this virus:
(1) We are revoking all authorizations of any county financed travel to out-of-state locations, as the health of our staff remains a priority.
(2) We strongly encourage the payment of tax and utility bills online. A link to online bill payment is placed on our county’s website. There are no additional fees for this service and bills can also be paid by check or money order.
(3) We are working with vendors and event organizers who have events scheduled at the county fairgrounds, and will work with them should they desire to cancel upcoming events at the fair.
(4) We will continue to monitor the spread of the virus and will make adjustments to staffing as needed.
It is in moments like these that our community can and must come together to work to slow the spread of the Coronavirus.
