[ARCHIVED] HARFORD COUNTY GOVERNMENT'S INDOOR FACILITIES TO SAFELY REOPEN TO THE PUBLIC ON MARCH 1, 2021

Harford County government will reopen its indoor facilities to the public effective Monday, March 1, 2021 with safety procedures implemented to protect visitors and county employees. The reopening includes county office buildings, which were closed in November 2020 after a surge in COVID-19 metrics. County operations never ceased during the closure, as employees worked in staggered shifts and teleworked to ensure the continuity of government.

 

The Department of Public Works is open for business to serve our citizens and customers. We will continue to accept plan and document submittals at 212 S. Bond Street in Bel Air and 3334 Abingdon Road in Abingdon; however, general public access will be limited to the lobby. Each lobby will have tables marked “Incoming” and “Outgoing” for the exchange of documents. Incoming packages must be wrapped, boxed or in an envelope, and clearly labeled with the person or agency to which it is being submitted and an email address from the sender.

 

DPW will collect and distribute the packages to the appropriate staff within each building several times each day. A confirmation email will be sent to the sender acknowledging receipt, followed by another email when packages are ready to be picked up. Normal business hours will be maintained, Monday – Friday from 8 a.m. – 5 p.m.

 

Public meetings will continue to be held virtually until further notice.  Citizens and customers seeking to do business with the county are strongly encouraged make appointments whenever possible and to review each department’s safety procedures before arriving in person.    All visitors will be required to wear masks and practice social distancing.
