St. Clair County values the health of our citizens and we have been working hard to provide you a healthier environment when you need to visit a County building or property. The County’s precautions won’t work without the assistance of our citizens.

 

If you must conduct your business in person, be prepared to do your part to slow the spread of COVID-19 by following the Center for Disease Control’s guidelines.

 

Please be aware, County Departments are operating for a reduced number of hours each day.  County Departments providing in person services to the public will be open Monday through Friday from 9:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m.

 

1. AVOID COUNTY BUILDINGS WHEN POSSIBLE  Many County Departments have services available online.  Check the County website www.co.st-clair.il.us for a list of Departments that will be offering services online or that are scheduling appointments.  You might be able to avoid that trip to the County building. Only people conducting County business should enter the building. After conducting your business please exit the county building to accommodate other people.

 

2.  WEAR A FACE COVERING   A proper face covering is required for entry into any County  building/property.  Your nose and mouth must be covered by a face covering.  Visitors who do not have one MUST be denied entry.

 

3. TEMPERATURE LOWER THAN 100.4   Everyone seeking entry into a County building will have their temperature taken.  Anyone with a temperature 100.4 or greater MUST be denied entry.

 

4. KEEP YOUR DISTANCE   Publicly accessed areas will have reduced capacity and individuals will be required to stand six feet apart.  All public access elevators are limited to two at any given time.

 

5. PLEASE BE PATIENT  Remember we are all in this together.  Please be patient with our employees and your fellow visitors.  The County understands this is a difficult time and we are doing our best to serve you safely.

 

6. DROP BOX   A secure drop box will be installed in the drive through area of the front circle drive where documents and other small items may be deposited for all of the various offices in the building.

 

7. COURT ACCESS   is limited to the persons directly involved in the case i.e. plaintiff, defendant, witness, attorneys and court personnel. Be prepared to show proof that you are directly involved in the court matter if asked.
