Orange County "Orange Talks...About COVID-19"
The Orange County Communications Department has released its inaugural production of “Orange Talks…” with a public service video focusing on the COVID-19 pandemic in Orange County. The Communications Department partnered with local experts from the Orange County Department of Fire & EMS, the Orange County Sheriff’s Office, the Rappahannock-Rapidan Health District, Orange Family Physicians, and Dogwood Village, to discuss COVID-19, vaccines, and how to keep our community safe. View the video here.
COVID-19 Utility-Rent-Mortgage Relief Available to Gordonsville Residents
Town Council has allocated $45,000 of its CARES Act funding to the Orange County Department of Social Services CARES Act Fund Program to provide assistance to Gordonsville residents who need utility (electric, water, sewer, etc.), rent or mortgage relief due to COVID-19. Eligibility guidelines and more information about the program are available at this link. Applications are available at the Orange County Department of Social Services, at the Gordonsville Treasurer's Office, or online at this link.
Utility and Tax Payments
We encourage our customers to continue to make utility or tax payments on-line through PayGov or by placing them in the drop-box behind Town Hall. If you would like a receipt emailed to you for payments left in the drop box, please request a receipt with your payment and provide your email address. The Town will not cut-off water service for non-payment until the state of emergency for Virginia has been lifted; however, timely payment for water/sewer service is still expected and is appreciated.
Visiting Town Offices
Gordonsville Town offices are open for public access. The protocols below are intended to protect the health and welfare of citizens and employees. They must be observed for the duration of Phase III of Governor Northam’s Forward Virginia initiative and beyond at least until such time as the local emergency regarding COVID-19 has been lifted. Everyone's effort to observe these is appreciated.
Protocols for Visiting Town Offices
- The public will be asked to wear masks when they enter a Town building.
- Physical distancing is required in all lobbies and public assembly areas.
- Employee work spaces will be off-limits to the public.
- Meeting with citizens will still be by technology. If an in-person meeting is absolutely necessary, an appointment is required along with masks and physical distancing.
- Citizen participation in Council meetings will still be via Zoom and sending in written comments, at least through Phase III.
Protocols for Visiting the Visitor Center
- In the Visitor Center, only one “visitor group” (people who are already together—a family, a couple, friends, etc.) will be allowed in the center at one time.
- Masks must be worn by visitors while inside the center.
