As of Monday, March 16, 2020, Scott County Government decided to limit access between County staff and the public in response to the Coronavirus. Public service remains the top priority for all County departments. Agencies are open and available for document drop-off for business purposes.  Please contact offices via phone or e-mail for questions or for any immediate needs.  Contact information for departments can be found on our webpage at https://scottky.gov/county-government/ 

We remain poised and prepared to provide emergency and non-emergency services as needed. Please continue preventive measures to limit the chance of exposure.   Please follow this link for more details on prevention:

We will open up available appointments on Monday, Feb 1 @ 9am. We will only open up the number of appointments that we have vaccines for. If you are a first responder, healthcare worker, or 70+ years of age, please register on our website www.wedcohealth.org. Please click on “vaccine” then “first dose” to make an appt. If you cannot schedule online, please call 859-234-8750, press 6 to get scheduled for an appt. We are still receiving small amounts of vaccine each week so we ask for your patience as we continue to work through this process.
