Staff Report

Face coverings will be required in Fulton County government buildings, according to information from Fulton County Commissioners Jon Rupp, Bill Rufenacht, and Jeff Rupp, in cooperation with county elected officials.

Effective Monday, May 4, all people entering the courthouse complex and all Fulton County buildings are required to wear a mask, scarf or other covering on their face prior to entering. Masks shall be worn in all public areas of all buildings, and social distancing of at least six feet shall be maintained.

As Fulton County offices and departments work to comply with Governor Mike DeWine’s re-opening plan, it’s recommended that visitors call before visiting. Access to many county offices and departments is restricted.
