K. William Boyer
Washington County News

From the Washington County, Florida Emergency Management Office for Immediate Release:

A shelter of last resort will be open for Washington County residents at 680 2nd Street in Chipley beginning this evening at 6:30 PM, Wednesday, September 16, 2020.  This shelter is not ARC certified and is not pet friendly.  With COVID-19 concerns, we encourage residents to consider alternatives to this option.  Shared spaces and crowded conditions can increase the COVID-19 transmission risk. Staying in a hotel or with friends or family in an area where impacts are not expected are good options.  Meals and cots will not be provided and there are no shower accommodations. 

Chipley's Redevelopment Board is currently looking for new faces to join their board.
