Officials discuss COVID-19 plans

PRESCOTT – Residents of Prescott and Nevada County can expect more of the same next week when it comes to services in Prescott and Nevada County.

Nevada County Judge Mark Glass said as of now plans are to keep the same schedule the Nevada County Courthouse had the week of March 23, but he’ll be talking to county officials to make sure. In the meantime, he added, the road and bridge crews are still working, but only because they tend to operate independently and don’t work in close quarters, but will be working four 10-hour days. In addition, the trash crews will continue operating on schedule.

Jamie Hillery, executive director of the Prescott-Nevada County Chamber of Commerce, said the chamber will continue operating as it has during the week of March 23, with most of the work eing done by phone. She said they will keep contacting businesses and updating who’s doing what to keep the word out as to which businesses are open and when.

Tammie Rose, director of Community Development, said her office and the Prescott-Nevada County Economic Development Office will also continue working remotely next week.

Prescott Mayor Terry Oliver said he’ll assess the situation Sunday and make a decision on what to do then.
