USDA Announces Limited Access At Service Centers
Many USDA Service Centers are currently open for business, some by appointment only. In certain locations, USDA Service Centers are closed to the public with employees teleworking who can assist customers virtually. Please call your local USDA Service Center for up-to-date information on access.
All customers are asked to consider the questions below before entering a USDA Service Center:
- Have you or has someone living in your household, someone you’ve been in close or frequent contact with, or someone you are caring for been diagnosed with COVID-19 or had any contact with a confirmed case of COVID-19?
- In the last 14 days, have you or has someone living in your household, someone you have been in close or frequent contact with, or someone you are caring for returned from, or made a travel connection through a CDC Level 2 or Level 3 country or State Department Level 3 or Level 4 country?
- Do you currently have, or have you had within the last 24 hours, any cold or flu symptoms with a fever greater than 100.4 or acute respiratory distress (e.g., shortness of breath and coughing)?
If the answer to any of the above question is “yes” customers are asked to call their local USDA Service Center to schedule an appointment to conduct business over the phone.
IIf the answer to all of the questions is no and the local office is open, customers are asked to call the local USDA Service Center to schedule an appointment to conduct business in person.
