Sheriff's Office Locking Its Doors
March 18, 2020
Walk-In Traffic No Longer Allowed at Gage County Sheriff’s Office
Although there are no confirmed cases of COVID-19 in Beatrice or in the Gage County area at this time, the Gage County Sheriff’s Office this week will be locking its doors to walk-in traffic beginning at 5 p.m. on Wednesday, March 18.
“We are still available and ready to assist residents as necessary,” Sheriff Millard “Gus” Gustafson said. “We are just asking that instead of walking into our office that the public call in at 402-223-5221 or contact us through our website at www.gagecountysheriff.us .”
If someone has business that requires a personal visit, they will need to use the intercom/camera located on the west side of the Sheriff’s Office main door, according to Gustafson. The staff will review the request and make a determination to either allow the person to enter the office lobby area or wait outside for further assistance.
Gustafson said they are asking anyone who is feeling sick or who has been exposed to someone who has tested positive for COVID-19 not to come to the Sheriff’s Office.
“We appreciate the public’s patience and understanding during this evolving situation,” Gustafson said. “The Gage County Sheriff’s Office will continue to monitor staff and inmates for any warning signs of COVID-19 while continuing to conduct business protecting and serving the citizens of Gage County.”
