Operations and Procedures
Clinton County Courthouse Offices continue to be open to the public during the COVID-19 pandemic. However, the public is strongly encouraged to contact the specific department they have business with via phone or email, prior to arriving, to determine if they can use Clinton County on-line services (completing applications, payment of fees, applying for permits, etc.) to complete their business or if their matter requires in-person assistance.
We ask the public to follow the following safety procedures:
Stay home if you have any of these symptoms of COVID-19:
- Shortness of Breath/Difficulty Breathing
- Muscle or Body Aches
- New Loss of Smell/Taste
- Sore Throat
- Congestion or Runny Nose
- Nausea or Vomiting
- If you have a temperature of 100.4 degrees or higher
- If you have had close contact with an individual that has tested positive with COVID-19
- If you have traveled internationally or taken a cruise
Clinton County is attempting to limit the amount of in-person services to reduce traffic in the Courthouse building by encouraging the public to use the County’s on-line services. Please contact the specific departments via telephone or email for any questions/comments regarding in-person and on-line services (Please See Departments Contacts and On-Line Services Links Below).
Additionally, the following safety measures continue to be required for in-person business at the Clinton County Courthouse:
Face Masks – Masks are recommended, but not required, if you are not vaccinated.
Designated Entrances – The south door remains the only entrance/exit for the general public.
Social Distancing – Visitors who can conduct business via a department’s front window/counter must maintain six (6) feet of distance from others at all times. Marks separating visitors by six (6) feet are placed on the floor in front of all county department reception areas.
Enhanced Hygiene – Hand sanitizer stations are located throughout the building and signs are posted regarding proper hand washing methods. Handshaking is also prohibited to ensure good hand hygiene.
