| Curry County Manager’s Office
417 Gidding Street, Suite 100
Clovis, NM 88101
For Immediate Release on: March 16, 2020
• County Government Offices Administration, Finance, Clerk’s, Assessor’s, Treasurer’s, Grants and Road will not provide direct services to the public. If the public has business with any of these offices, business will need to be conducted electronically via Email or through the mail or by telephone.
Curry County apologizes for any inconvenience this may cause. The safety and security of our employees and the public is our upmost concern. We ask that you to be patient in receiving responses, as we will be operating with limited staff, and response time may be a little longer than usual.
Curry County will continue to work with the State of New Mexico and the Federal Government in providing information to you as it becomes available through our website at www.currycounty.org and the County Facebook page. As the public health experts have advised: social isolation is the most important strategy for containing and mitigating the spread of COVID-19. We are hoping this will limit the opportunity for person to person contact and prevent the spread.
This directive will exclude the Sheriff’s Office, the Adult and Juvenile Detention Officers, the Road Department and the DWI and Misdemeanor Compliance Officers.
Curry County Maintenance employees will continue to clean and maintain County property.
In addition, as this is an inconvenience, while County Offices are closed and employees may be working from home, the County is going to take advantage of this time and assign online training courses for the employees to take from home to advance their skills, knowledge and service to the public. These courses are being provided through New Mexico Counties (NMC) LocalGov U. The course will have an exam and employees will have to pass with 70% or higher to receive completion.
As a reminder, New Mexicans who report symptoms of COVID-19 infection, such as fever, cough or shortness of breath should call their healthcare provider or the COVID-19 hotline immediately at 1-855-600-3453
