Notice from Adair County Government - limited hours continue

Adair County Government offices report they will run on a limited-open basis for the coming week, October 19-24, 2020, due to the rise in cases of COVID-19.

All offices are open and available by phone, email and texts or faxes as were done in the spring, and General Election early voting will continue in the basement of the Annex as was done successfully last week.

Full details and contact numbers will be printed here Monday morning - county services will not be lacking, it will just take a bit more time to accomplish.
