TERRE HAUTE, Ind. (WTWO/WAWV) — Vigo County Government buildings will be closed to the public effective Sunday per a pandemic-related decree by the County Board of Commissioners.
A statement released by the board said, “With respect to the increase in COVID-19 cases in Vigo County, the Governor’s Public Health Emergency orders, and by guidance of the Vigo County Health Department, the Commissioners are returning to our ‘open for business by appointment’ program until further notice.”
Conducting business with the government by phone or email is now recommended, though appointments can be made to conduct business. Department contact information can be found at VigoCounty.IN.Gov.
All employees, contractors, vendors and visitors visiting indoor public areas of Vigo County buildings — which as of Sunday can only be done by appointment only — must wear face coverings. Only those under the age of two or who have an existing underlying health condition that prohibits the wearing of a face covering are exempt.
