PULASKI COUNTY, Va. (WFXR) – Goverment offices in Pulaski County have a plan in place to begin reopening offices.

As of Monday, May 18, Pulaski County Administration and employees have stopped teleworking and have returned to a report-to-work schedule.

County offices are preparing to safely open to the public on Tuesday, May 26 under health safety guidelines.

That day, the County will also plan to reopen all outdoor recreation facilities as well as all county-operated indoor recreation facilities, adhering to health safety guidelines.

As employees head back to the office, Pulaski County officials have implemented the following policies:

  • Wear an appropriate face covering or mask when in public spaces
  • Washing your hands with soap and water or use hand sanitizer
  • Coughing or sneezing into a tissue (and discard it) or your interior elbow
  • Avoid touching your mouth, nose, eyes or face in public
  • Practice “physical distancing” and avoid shaking hands
  • Remain at home if you are sick and avoid others who are sick

Officials with Pulaski County have not decided whether or not certain summer activities, community events or parks and recreation operations will continue.

The County will continue to monitor national and state reopening guidelines as well as Executive Orders from the Governor to make a final determination when and what will reopen or resume.
