Dyer County Clerk Diane Moore informed the State Gazette on Tuesday her office will reopen on Monday, July 6 with drive-thru services only. The County Clerk’s office has been closed since Wednesday afternoon, June 24, with two employees testing positive with COVID-19.

Speaking on offering drive-thru service only, Moore stated, “I know it’s an inconvenience, but it’s better than possibly having to shut down again. I just ask for people to be patient. It will take a little longer, but this is for their safety, too.”

Currently, patrons can renew tags online, as Moore mentioned last week, two employees work from the office every other day to process online transactions. Additionally, tags can be renewed a Newbern City Hall.

Moore noted the kiosk in Newbern can only renew tags, and customers must have their registration with them.

“Renewing tags is the only thing that can be done at the kiosk at Newbern City Hall,” she said.

On reopening, Moore said, “Reopening on Monday [July 6] isn’t based on my opinion, but it’s based on facts. We have been in contact with Nashville everyday and with the health department in Jackson. We can’t wait to get back to work.”

She added no additional employees have tested positive for the virus.
