The DeWitt County Courthouse remains open, but county officials are encouraging residents to call ahead.
DeWitt County Sheriff Mike Walker explains officials are trying to limit the amount of traffic through the County Building. He says if you do need to do business with the county, then be prepared for additional screening.
Traffic within the DeWitt County building has already diminished. Sheriff Walker credits that to the decision last week to delay minor court cases.
Again, if you need to do business at the DeWitt County building, please call ahead to the office you plan to visit.
