As of June 4th, 2020, access to departments within the Yates County Building are by appointment only. CCE Yates Staff will continue to work from home and continue work in the community (agriculture, gardening, natural resources) using social distancing best practices. Should you need to reach any of our staff members, visit our Staff page for their email addresses. You can also send us a message via our Facebook page.

This plan will be updated as changes occur and will be posted for the public via our website, social media, and local media. Stay safe everyone.
