Hamilton County Commissioners Issue Level Three Operations
All County Buildings to Close for Non-Essential Business
(NOBLESVILLE, MARCH 23, 2020) – The Hamilton County Commissioners have ordered the county to operate under a Level Three Operations in response to Indiana Governor Eric Holcomb’s stay-at-home order to prevent the spread of the COVID-19.
Beginning Tuesday, March 24th at 4:30 p.m., all county government offices will be closed to in-person public activity until at least April 7th. This includes the Hamilton County Judicial Center, Old Courthouse, Hamilton County Parks & Recreation Department, Hamilton County Health Department, Hamilton County Highway Department, Hamilton County Soil & Conservation District, Hamilton County Weights & Measures, and the Hamilton County Household Hazardous Waste Center.
“As the Governor said, the next two weeks are critical if we are to slow the spread of COVID-19,” says Hamilton County Commissioner Christine Altman. “To help in that effort, we are closing our doors and asking the community to do as much of their county business online, by mail, or by phone as they can.”
County employees will work remotely whenever possible and continue to provide core functions online and by phone. All public safety functions will continue. The lobbies of the Sheriff’s Office are closed to the public, but if you’ve been issued a court order or are legally required to be at the jail you will be expected to show up. Gun permits are still being processed by appointment only at (317) 773-1872. For a complete list of county services available online or through mail, please visit
The governor’s directive asks citizens to remain in their homes except when they are at work or for permitted activities, such as taking care of others, obtaining necessary supplies, and for health and safety. To learn more about the stay-at-home order, please visit https://www.in.gov/gov/3232.htm.
