Please see attached notice from Joanna Staton, Bell County District Clerk.

Due to the ongoing concerns regarding COVID-19 {Coronavirus), the Bell County District Clerk's Office has implemented a few changes, effective immediately. It is our hope and plan to remain open to continue to serve the citizens of Bell County; however, the health of the employees and their families is certainly a priority of mine. It is my goal to eliminate as much public contact and traffic in and out of our office as possible; therefore, I am asking each of you to comply with the following temporary guidelines:
