Therefore, York County Sheriff’s Office will institute “social distancing” measures for the Sheriff’s Office and Detention Center Lobbies effective immediately.

Signage is posted at the security entrance to the Moss Justice Center as well as the Sheriff’s Office and Detention Center Lobbies to remind citizens who may feel feverish, have a cough and shortness of breath to stop and call before entering the facility.
