THE COUNTY, Ontario – The County Administration Building, located at 20 Pitt Street in Cornwall, will reopen to all staff on June 1, CAO Tim Simpson announced today.
Many staff have been working remotely since March 16, when it was decided that closing the building to the public would be an effective way to help blunt the spread of the COVID-19 outbreak.
Simpson said while staff will be present, the building will remain closed to the public until health officials and County senior management determines it is safe for a full reopening. The Provincial Offences Court remains closed for the time being.
“All of our decisions are based on the advice of health-care officials and political leadership who have the best interest of the general public and staff at top of mind,” said Simpson. “We will be following all health and safety protocols. County staff remain available by phone and email to answer questions from the public, provide services like permit applications and other important County functions.”
