ND: Morton Co. Declares Public Health Emergency; Access to Offices Limited

Morton County declares public health emergency; access to offices limited

The Morton County Commission has declared a Public Health Emergency due to COVID-19 and its impacts to the health, well-being and safety of citizens in Morton County.

The Morton County Courthouse, Highway Department and Law Enforcement are limiting access to the public, effective immediately. These facilities are open for business, but the buildings will be locked and visitors will be let in by appointment only. People should call ahead and attempt to complete their business via phone. If that is not possible, then they should make an appointment and the department staff will allow them into the building.

Fillable forms are available on our website’s home page at www.mortonnd.org/forms and the public is encouraged to complete various applications and permits online.

Court proceedings will continue, however, only necessary parties and witnesses will be allowed to attend the court hearings.

We are currently working on procedures to limit physical attendance at our various board and commission meetings while still allowing the public to participate as necessary. That information will be forthcoming.

Morton County employees will still report to work unless alternate arrangements have been made with department leaders.
