Vernon County has seen a surge in positive Covid-19 cases, and without any significant change in our behavior, future projected metrics are becoming a growing concern.

In an effort to slow the spread of Covid-19, Vernon County officials have made the decision that all Vernon County buildings will be closed to the public effective Thursday, Nov. 12, at 4:30 p.m.

Countywide, wherever possible, a number of county employees will have the technical capability to work outside of an office setting and will reduce face-to-face human contact whenever possible. This will help provide social distancing at work consistent with our public health department recommendations. Using prevention, we can slow the spread of the disease and protect the most vulnerable.

Vernon County officials are encouraging people to conduct business with county departments via phone and email when possible. If you need to meet with a county department, you are asked to call ahead and make an appointment with that department. A face covering is required when conducting business within a county building. A list of department phone numbers can be found below, as well as on our website at www.vernoncounty.org.
