Richland Center, WI: Richland County Health and Human Services Director, Tracy Thorsen announced that the Community Services Building and all Health and Human Services operations will reopen to the public starting Monday, July 6th.

The Community Services Building has been modified to allow for social distancing, many chairs have been removed from the lobby and conference rooms, additional sanitizing and safeguards have been put in place, and staff will be either behind Plexiglas or wearing masks when interacting with the public. It is recommended that individuals coming into the public building wear masks as well.

Clients and members of the public may continue to call 608-647-8821 for assistance and inquiries.
