During the current Stay at Home Order extension, Pope County reminds its citizens and residents that the County will continue to provide critical services while this health emergency is in effect. All County employees are designated as “critical” by the County pursuant to the Governor’s Order, which means they will remain on duty and serving the people throughout this period. The extension announced yesterday runs through Monday, May 4.
