Omicron COVID-19 Variant Impacting County Operations

The very contagious Omicron variant of the COVID-19 virus is beginning to impact Alachua County staff and operations. As of this morning, approximately 25 employees have tested positive. We are approaching the point where County services (such as trash pickups and road maintenance) may be impacted.

Alachua County staff are working diligently to provide uninterrupted government services and appreciate the understanding of County citizens during this challenging time. For those who must visit County buildings in-person, face masks are strongly encouraged regardless of vaccination status.  For those attending meetings in the Jack Durrance Auditorium or Grace Knight Conference Room, masks are required.
