Sheriff’s office to discontinue grocery delivery except for those quarantined

The Osage County Sheriff’s Office has been providing assistance for groceries, medications and Help House to those in need since the county was put under a stay at home order on March 28, 2020. Osage County Sheriff Laurie Dunn said the office had helped approximately 125 households since then.

“This service could not have been done without the help from Jerry’s Thriftway, Auburn Pharmacy, Schroeder Drugs and Carbondale Thriftway,” Dunn said.

Effective today, May 20, 2020, the sheriff’s office will discontinue those services except for anyone under quarantine or COVID 19 positive and who has no other way to receive groceries or medications.  For more information, call the sheriff’s office administrative number, 785-828-4657, 8 a.m.-4 p.m. Monday to Friday.

The sheriff encouraged everyone to remain cautious as the stay at home orders are lessened.

“As the governor’s orders for COVID 19 begin to change please continue to use your safety precautions as you are out and about and stay home when you can,” Dunn said.
