To all residents of Columbia County - GREAT JOB on moving through Phase 2 without any new COVID-19 cases. Now that we've made it through the 21 day period required between phases, Columbia County has applied to move to Phase 3 and are expecting approval any day.
Columbia County is again on the cutting edge of the phased reopening process, so guidance for businesses allowed to reopen MAY NOT BE READY when we receive approval. You may not reopen your business until guidance has been released. Everyone is expected to continue social distancing practices and the use of masks, and government bodies are still not allowed to meet in person at least through June 17th. All businesses that were not listed in phases 1 and 2, with the exception of nightclubs, will be able to reopen in Phase 3. A Phase 3 Town Hall Zoom Meeting will be held next week so residents and businesses can get their questions answered by local health officials.
