County provides information on courthouse operations
At the present time, the Clearwater County Courthouse and Department of Motor Vehicle Offices (both vehicle license and driver license) are open with business as usual, but are subject to closure at any time.
The court office located at the courthouse is staffed, but is closed to the public. Anyone with questions regarding a court appearance or case is asked to call the court office at 208-476-5596.
Although the courthouse is still open, do not come to any county office if they are symptomatic. Those who need assistance, please call that office as many things may be handled over the phone or by mail. Those who come to the courthouse and exhibit any symptoms, may be asked to leave. The Clearwater County employees are here to assist residents in any way they can, but they also need to protect workers.
