In response to the rapidly evolving COVID-19 situation and in conjunction with Minnesota Governor Walz’s Executive Order 20-20 asking Minnesotan’s to remain in their homes under the “Stay at Home Order,” the Clay County Board of Commissioners ordered the closure all County buildings March 31st, 2020. Departments will continue to provide service from 8:00am to 4:30pm Monday through Friday, remaining open to serve the public through telephone, e-mail, US mail, on-line services, and by appointment. All departments are being staffed, some at minimal levels, and may not have the ability to answer all phone calls immediately based on demand. Messages will be returned in the order which they were received. The Law Enforcement Center lobby will remain open in a limited capacity. These new temporary service modifications will remain in place until further notice.
The Seventh Judicial District Court is operated through the State of Minnesota and continues to be open for matters authorized under the Chief Justice’s Administrative Order. Public access is limited to the parties and their attorneys who shall appear remotely when feasible. If you have any court related questions, please contact Court Administration at 218-299-5065. Court Security Officers will meet citizens at the Courthouse entrance and provide directives.
