In response to the declaration of a national emergency and the state of emergency in North Carolina now in place regarding the coronavirus COVID-19, the North Carolina Judicial Branch has activated its public health emergency policy. To protect the health and safety of our staff and those we serve from the spread of this virus, the Clerk of Superior Court’s office in Davidson County will reduce its hours of operation and staff availability, effective Tuesday, March 24, 2020.
The Davidson County Clerk of Superior Court’s Office, located at 110 West Center Street in Lexington, NC, will be open to the public between the hours of 9:00 a.m. and 1:00 p.m., Monday through Friday. The public is strongly encouraged to use every effort to minimize in-person contact with courthouse personnel, including use of online services found at www.NCcourts.gov/services, and limiting visits to the courthouse for any services unavailable online. Emergency and essential filings will be accepted by clerk staff between the hours of 1:00 p.m. and 5:00 p.m. at the Magistrates’ Office located in the courthouse at 110 West Center Street in Lexington, NC. These changes will remain in effect until April 17, 2020, but may be extended, in whole or in part, if deemed necessary.
During this time of reduction in hours of operation and staff availability, the Clerk’s office will not process passport applications.
