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, Thursday, September 17, 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 because 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.
