LARNED — Pawnee County Commissioners extended restrictions to the public to include additional county buildings on Thursday. 

The Great Bend Tribune was informed by Pawnee County Attorney Doug McNett Thursday afternoon that the Commissioners extended the restrictions included in Resolution 2020-R-3 to the County Annex Building (Court Services and Community Corrections) and the Road and Bridge Shop. The restrictions, however, do not currently apply to the Sheriff’s Department, County Landfill or Camp Pawnee.

The public is advised to conduct county business over the phone or electronically whenever possible. In the event this is not possible, members of the public will need to contact the head of the department by telephone and be subject to a questionnaire developed by the Public Health Officer to determine health status before being admitted on a case-by-case basis to do business face-to-face with county employees. Department heads will have discretionary authority to grant access, which will be restricted to one individual of the public at a time per department. 

The phone number of the Pawnee County Courthouse is 620-285-3721 and the website is
