Flagler County is preparing to open the majority of its facilities on Monday, June 8, with safety procedures and some limitations in place to safeguard the health and well-being of the public.

The majority of public services — outside of libraries and parks — occur at the Government Services Complex, 1769 E. Moody Boulevard, Bunnell.

The decision was made June 4 to reopen in line with Gov. Ron DeSantis’ announcement to enter Phase 2 of the state’s “Safe. Smart. Step-by-Step.” plan for recovery from COVID-19, and his released Executive Order 20-139.

“We are going to do this in a manner that is as safe as we can possibly make it,” County Administrator Jerry Cameron said. “Our focus is to ensure that appropriate and available protective measures are in place to re-open all feasible government services.”

All facilities will require the following:

  • Visitors will be asked screening questions and have their temperatures taken
  • Room occupancies will be at or below 50% and not to exceed 50 visitors
  • Social distancing and cloth face coverings will continue to be required in line with CDC guidance
  • Frequent cleaning of shared, public work areas and frequently touched surfaces

Park pavilions and Community Center rentals will resume, on June 15, with occupancy restrictions in line with those for other county facilities.

“Over the last month or so we have taken steps to ensure that we can best protect the public and our employees,” said Emergency Management Director Jonathan Lord. “We may still have some service limitations, and encourage our residents and business to call ahead before visiting to verify that the service they are seeking is available.”

All residents and businesses are reminded to abide by Executive and Emergency Orders, and follow Florida Department of Health and CDC guidance.

Additionally, those who are sick and/or told to self-isolate are to: remain at home unless seeking medical care, cover coughs and sneezes, wear a face mask around others, and disinfect touched surfaces daily.
