In light of Governor Kelly’s re-opening plan, the Local Health Officer rescinded BARTON COUNTY EMERGENCY ORDER No. 2020-01. Barton County strongly encourages it’s citizens to practice good hygiene by coughing into your sleeve, frequently washing your hands with soap and water for 20 seconds or more, disinfect high touch areas continually and practice social distancing by maintaining a 6-foot perimeter.
The COVID-19 incident is ever changing. We will provide updates as things change. Social distancing will be enforced while in the courthouse. We encourage citizens to use the County’s online functions, emailing or calling for assistance.
Barton County is fully committed to providing essential services and serving the public. Thank you for your patience as we work to keep our employees and the public safe.
