MISSOULA — Due to Governor Bullock’s stay at home directive starting at 12:01 a.m. Saturday, March 28, through Friday, April 10, the Missoula County elected officials call for county public buildings to be closed to the public through the duration of the order, starting Monday, March 30.

These buildings include the courthouse, administration building, Relationship Violence Services, the health department, Community and Planning Services and Public Works.

Buildings that were already closed to the public will remain so, including the library, superintendent of schools, historical museum, records center and the fairgrounds.

County staff considered essential will alternate work schedules and continue working remotely as much as possible to minimize contact and adhere to physical distancing directives.

Essential county staff who will continue to report to work in person include incident response, law enforcement, 9-1-1 dispatchers, court staff, public health, public works, technology, financial services, commissioners and commissioners’ support, and communications.

Other staff will still be available to answer questions and serve the public remotely via telephone and email and will conduct business using online resources and the U.S. Postal Service as much as possible throughout the closure.

Check Missoula County department webpages for more information specific to their operations and changes to services.

You can call Missoula County at 721-5700 to connect with any department and learn more about adjustments to their operations.

Missoula County continues to contract with vendors to provide services for public activities such as elections, utility maintenance and construction and encourages them to follow all CDC and local guidelines to ensure physical distancing.
