The commissioners declared a disaster emergency on Monday, March 16, following similar measures taken by the federal and state governments. To support the ongoing monitoring of the coronavirus pandemic, the county has activated its Multi-Agency Coordination group, which will be set up at the county’s Emergency Operations Center. This will allow for ongoing collaboration and support of resources to support the response of the coronavirus pandemic.

Any future public meetings will be streamed live on the county’s Facebook page, fb.com/yorkcountypa. Comments and questions can be submitted on Facebook or by calling 717-771-4333 during future public meetings.

The commissioners are continuing to encourage the public to conduct their business with the county either online or over the phone if possible. The county’s website contains contact information for county departments.

The County has partnered with the YCEA to develop an online resource for local businesses at PreparedYork.com.

The health and well-being of York County employees and our community continues to be a top priority for this administration.
