The Allamakee County Courthouse will reopen to the public beginning on Wednesday, June 3rd with all COUNTY OFFICE business hours of 9:00am to 3:30pm daily. The shortened business hours will allow for courthouse staff to do necessary cleaning and disinfecting of the offices to protect the public and staff from the Covid19 Coronavirus.   

For accessibility reasons, the SOUTH DOOR of the courthouse will remain the only door unlocked for public use until further notice. 

Signs with public health guidelines will be expected to be followed when in the common areas of the courthouse for social distancing requirements.  While masks are not required in the hallways, their use is recommended. Courthouse staff wish to THANK EVERYONE for their patience and your willingness to follow healthy practices while we get through this experience together!!
