As a response to COVID-19, the Clay County Sheriff’s Office has taken measures to help limit the spread of the virus. Please read on for a full list of services that have been impacted by this global pandemic. As with you all, we’re hoping to be able to get back to normal as soon as safely possible.

We are participating in community engagement events while adhering to CDC guidelines.

All of our lobbies are locked. Please call ahead if you need our services in person; for example, report copies, background checks.

Fingerprinting services are by appointment only. Please call (904) 213-6090 to schedule an appointment.

Employment interviews are being conducted via zoom and in person, but continue to be on a limited schedule.

Classes are postponed until further notice.

Our jail staffing has daily screening upon entry into the facility, and staffing modifications are implemented to reduce jail personnel entering the facility during each seven-day workweek.

Inmates are issued masks, which are replaced as needed, and they are required to wear them outside of their cell. All CCSO members are required to wear masks in common areas.

Inmates received into the facility after arrest are screened before acceptance into the facility. An additional screening takes place during processing.

Inmates processed into the facility prior to and up to seven days after receipt will be held in a limited occupancy dorm for a reduced opportunity for exposure/contamination. After the quarantine period, inmates are then allowed to transition into general population.

Additional disinfecting of the housing units is taking place several times throughout each shift.

The jail lobby is open to the public with limited transactions.
