Due to the number of COVID cases in the county offices, employees will be returning to half staff on alternating weeks' work schedule that began yesterday (Tuesday).
Circuit and General Sessions Court Clerk Natalie B. Oakley said in an email Tuesday her office will be open by appointment only.
The Giles County Clerks office will be open for appointments only and the Drive-thru will be open for renewals and placards.
All other Giles County government offices will be operating under COVID-19 requirements that include alternate schedules for employees in each office and appointments required to access county offices.
The county’s Office of Emergency Management and the Clerk and Master’s office have both been closed this week due to COVID-19.
Giles County Executive Melissa Greene has issued an executive order that went into effect Tuesday and is scheduled to last at least until January 17th, 2021.
Greene said the whole point is to try to keep the offices from having to close completely.
A list of Giles County government offices and how to contact them to make an appointment is available at gilescountytn.gov/contact/.
Members of the public needing access to county offices will need to set an appointment.
