The closure of the Boyd County Clerk’s Office is still in effect. The closure began following the Governor’s decision to close non-essential services.

“I am acutely aware that this decision will inconvenience a lot of people, so I do not make the decision lightly,” Boyd County Clerk Debbie Jones said. “I also believe that we all need to make a large investment in social distancing to protect those most vulnerable to COVID-19. To do any less is simply not an option.”

During the time when the Boyd County Clerk’s Office is closed to public access, a change in the way business is conducted has taken effect.
