As of March 18th, and until further notice, operations in the Polk County Courthouse will be extremely reduced. We will be operating under a contingency of operations plan that will require many employees to work from home.
This practice will allow us to have a replacement should a co-worker(s) become quarantined. To be clear, the courthouse is open, but, we are discouraging visitors for every reason, except urgent business. If you happen to have urgent business, we are asking you to call that respective office in advance so that you can be advised of protocol.
The COVID-19 Pandemic is a serious threat and the measures we are taking should ensure that there is not a lapse in the urgent business of the people of Polk County. Many items of business can be done by telephone, email, or US mail.
