As of press time, Linn County’s website is down and several systems are offline affecting the ability to provide services to the public.

Linn County is consulting with state, federal and private resources to respond to the incident as quickly as possible and get systems back online.

Individual Linn County departments can be contacted via telephone.

The Linn County Sheriff’s Office and the Health Services Department are not affected by this incident. However, some Health Services systems have been shut down as a precaution.

At this time, there is no evidence that any public or employee personal data has been compromised.
