The nation has been dealing with the outbreak of COVID-19 for about a month now. We at the Sheriff’s Office are glad to say the people of Carter County have already cooperated voluntarily with social distancing practices to reduce potential spread of the virus. As we move forward into the coming weeks, we remain confident that people will continue to make responsible decisions. The Sheriff’s Office will continue to do its part to ensure the people of this county are safe. We simply ask that everyone remain calm and continue making the level-headed decisions we’ve seen so far.
