“We’ve closely monitored developments related to the spread of COVID-19 and have taken numerous proactive measures to adjust our operations as a government agency,” said Michelle Lancaster, deputy county manager and human services agency director. “It’s critical that we take every precaution to protect the health of our employees and residents we serve, with minimal impacts to the important services we provide.”
All services that can be provided via the website, phone and email will be completed virtually. Select services will be provided by appointment only. Visit www.unioncountync.gov for detailed information on how to access our services.
“There will continue to be continuity of services that are vitally important to this community,” County Manager Mark Watson said. “However, we have reached a point with the development of this situation that will require further restriction and limiting of public access to our facilities.”
