Services During COVID-19

Due to surging COVID-19 cases and hospitalizations, Linn County has closed most County buildings to the public once again to help reduce community spread of the virus and to help ensure continuity of County services. The closure will remain in effect until public health conditions improve and allow for modifications. 

County staff continue to work on-site and remotely to provide County services to the public. Residents and businesses may conduct County business online, by phone, by email, by mail, and by drop boxes located outside County buildings. 

Please contact the Engineering and Secondary Road Department with questions about accessing services remotely.

We appreciate the public's understanding of the need to conduct business in new ways during this global pandemic.
