Sheriff Hall Announces Procedural Changes for Entering DCSO Facilities

DCSO Employees –

As you might imagine, we are working to keep our pulse on the latest information circulating about COVID-19 or Coronavirus. I need you to keep an eye on the Monitor while at work and social media, when home, for announcements/decisions leadership is making – because much of it involves you.

Beginning Thursday at 3 p.m., all employees, vendors, or others who walk through checkpoint will have their temperature taken by a DCSO staff member (infrared/no touch thermometer). This includes attorneys. If an individual’s temperature is 100 degrees or above, he/she will be refused entry into the facility.

Each facility has detailed post instructions for the employee checking the temperatures, instructions for the Lt. should someone register 100 or above, and a document that will be provided to any person who is denied entry due to a fever. We anticipate a version of this procedure will be in place at all DCSO locations/divisions by next week.

I ask each of you to remain vigilant in facility/personal space sanitation as health officials continue to emphasize:

  • Wash your hands;
  • Clean your work space;
  • Practice social distancing when possible;
  • Cover your mouth and nose (not with your hands) when coughing or sneezing;
  • Don’t touch your eyes, nose, or mouth;
  • Stay home if you are sick.

Thanks for all you are doing to keep our agency operating during this time of national and local crisis.

Be safe and well,

Sheriff Daron Hall
