Hall Co. Government Center, libraries adjust operations following positive COVID-19 data

New Hall County Government Center

(NOTE: Appointment-only operations ended on March 1, 2021. Click here to read more.)

Citizens will soon have a larger window of time to book appointments at the Hall County Government Center as County officials look to expand their appointment-only service hours to the public at that facility.

“Over the past few weeks, the COVID-19 statistical data has decreased for the Hall County community,” Hall County Administrator Jock Connell said. “Given this information, in addition to the numerous social distancing practices that are in place at the government center, we are carefully expanding our appointment-only hours to 8 a.m. until 5 p.m. Monday through Friday beginning Monday, Feb. 15.”

The government center transitioned into an appointment-only based operation earlier this year as the number of COVID-19 cases trended upward. The facility’s current hours for appointment are 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. 

“The appointment-only model has allowed us to careful manage the number of people in our facility at any given time, affording us the opportunity to carefully clean and disinfect areas of the building frequented by the public,” said Connell. “We will continue to closely monitor local COVID-19 data and will make further adjustments to our operations as necessary.”

A complete list of departments available for appointment-only services can be found at www.hallcounty.org. That is also where a complete listing of contact information by department can be found for citizens with specific questions or concerns. Citizens can schedule an appointment by calling 770-535-8288.

In addition, beginning Monday, Feb. 15, the Hall County Library System will reopen all of its branches for normal operations with the exception of the North Hall Technology Center, which will remain open for appointment only and curbside service until further notice. More information is available at www.hallcountylibrary.org or 770-532-3311.

Meanwhile, citizens are still encouraged to conduct County business on Hall County’s website, www.hallcounty.org, if possible. Online motor vehicle services, including vehicle registration renewals, the payment of insurance fines, etc. are all available via the "Online Payments" button on the website. That is also where citizens can pay their property tax, renew their business license, and more.

Finally, a number of proactive steps Hall County has taken to date in regards to the coronavirus pandemic, along with a number of other helpful resources on this issue, can be found at ready.hallcounty.org.

“As always, the health and wellness of our employees and the public remains our top priority as we deliver essential services to the citizens of Hall County,” said Connell.
