Earlier today, Collin County Judge Chris Hill announced that the executive order prohibiting unscheduled in-person visits at county facilities will expire at 11:59 PM on Thursday, April 30, 2020.

From the beginning of the disaster declaration, Collin County offices have remained open and were available by phone, by mail, online, and in-person with an appointment. As of Friday, May 1, county offices will reopen for unscheduled, in-person visits.

Even after May 1, extra precautions will be taken to prevent the spread of COVID-19.

Some examples of these extra precautions include:

  • Face masks will be available for the public and county employees (and may be required in certain departments)
  • Plexiglass sneeze guards will be installed in certain locations where face-to-face interactions are more common
  • Departments will limit the number of individuals in the office at the same time to avoid gatherings and to allow for adequate spacing between guests
  • Offices will undergo regular and more frequent cleaning and sanitizing

County employees will continue to serve the public by phone, by mail, and online. Individuals who have underlying health complications or who may be at increased risk of severe illness are highly encouraged to stay home and allow us to serve you with excellence by one of these alternate methods.

Collin County courts (Justice of the Peace Courts, Probate Courts, County Courts at Law, and District Courts) are under the jurisdiction of the Texas Office of Court Administration (OCA), and those departments will resume in-person court proceedings according to updates provided by OCA.
