Lee County Clerk of Court – Service Updates Resulting from Stay-At-Home Order

Lee County Clerk makes more changes following Florida’s statewide stay-at-home order from Governor Ron DeSantis. The order begins at 12AM Friday morning and expires on April 30, 2020, unless extended. Under the order, people will still be allowed to engage in essential activities, but should stay at home otherwise.

The Clerk’s Office works in support of essential county government and court functions and therefore will continue providing services, but without face-to-face interactions. All but 25 Clerk team members are working from home.  Those remaining 25 reporting to the office are checking mail, drop boxes, attending court, scanning, printing, etc. as necessary.
