Albemarle County is closing our office buildings to the general public until further notice due to COVID-19.

Albemarle County staff will still provide the quality services you rely on, but we’re making some changes to reduce the transmission of COVID-19. In an effort to balance the need to maintain essential services while reducing transmission and protecting vulnerable populations, the County Office Buildings at 401 McIntire Road and 1600 Fifth Street Extended will close to the general public until further notice, effective Friday, March 27 at 5 pm, with limited exceptions.
