USDA Service Centers open for business by phone appointment only
Posted Mar 26, 2020 4:21 PM
U.S. Department of Agriculture Service Centers nationwide will continue to conduct business but by phone only. Field work will continue with appropriate social distancing as precautionary measures to help prevent the spread of coronavirus. While program delivery staff will continue to come into the office, they will be working with producers by phone, and using online tools whenever possible. All Service Center visitors wishing to conduct business with USDA's Farm Service Agency, Natural Resources Conservation Service, or any other Service Center agency are required to call to schedule a phone appointment.
U-S-D-A continues to look at the flexibilities to deliver programs on behalf of producers, just as they have in past situations, such as natural disasters. Farmers and ranchers are resilient and USDA will continue to deliver disaster assistance, safety net, farm loan and conservation programs that keep American agriculture in business today and long into the future.
For the most current updates on available services and Service Center status, visit farmers.gov/coronavirus.
Barton County buildings have been restricted to the public. Please call the county office you wish to transact business with for more information. You can also visit the website at: www.bartoncounty.org for more information and instruction on how to conduct business with the County at this time. We cannot stress enough the need to practice good hygiene and maintain social distancing by using the County’s online functions, emailing or calling ahead for assistance. County officials will continue to provide further information as it becomes available.
