Inspections (residential & commercial) have resumed and will be scheduled based on site-specific conditions and the ability for safe social distancing practices to be maintained. It is preferred that occupied homes are vacated with the exception of one individual to shadow the inspector and maintain a six foot distance (masks are encouraged to be worn by the homeowner). Inspectors will wear masks, gloves and other PPE. If the safety of a site or the ability to maintain social distancing is compromised, an inspector may terminate inspection for those reasons and provide additional options.

*Roof inspections resume through the County on May 11. 

Revised policies and staff availability during this public health emergency will dictate the limits. Please review the following document for further guidance. COVID-19 Building Guidelines Document
