COVID-19/Coronavirus

Fellow Orange County Residents,

Since the outbreak of the COVID-19 crisis here in Orange County, I have worked daily at the Emergency Services Center with key Health and Emergency Services personnel, as well as members of my staff. Other critical County staff are working from remote locations or from home; all working hard to ensure that every means of helping  our residents remain as healthy and as informed as possible is being utilized.

We are also working diligently to obtain and direct resources to the County’s hospitals, medical care providers and first responders, the essential personnel on the front lines of this fight.

This website has much information  that will hopefully be helpful to you and your families. Whether you need food or medical assistance, have business related questions or personal unemployment concerns, answers and direction to resources can be found here. I also provide regular updates on Facebook, which I encourage you to watch.

It will be a long road; but, together, we will get through this. Until then, please stay home, stay safe, and most of all, stay healthy.

All my best,

Steven M. Neuhaus
Orange County Executive
