COVID-19 Policy

In light of the recent CDC recommendations urging social distancing, (reducing close contact between people), I will be implementing changes to our normal office procedures.  My goal is to take every action necessary to prevent community spread of the Coronavirus, as well as protect and ensure the safety of my employees, their families and the public. 

Firstly, I strongly encourage utilizing the services we offer online so as not to necessitate visiting the office.  I am encouraging the use of our drive-thru window at the Blountville location for all tag renewals.  You can also renew your tag online at www.tncountyclerk.com or mail in your renewal to our office at 3258 Hwy 126, Blountville, TN  37617.  Your request will be processed promptly and your new registration will be mailed to you.  Additionally, you can apply for a business license or to be a notary public all from the convenience of your home or office.  

I will continue to monitor the situation and if community spread begins, I will take any further action deemed necessary.  Please know that we will do everything within our power to continue to serve the public’s needs as best we can, however, it would be best to prepare for some slight inconveniences. 

As wedding season begins to get in full swing, we may require an appointment so as to lessen foot traffic within the office.  You can apply for your marriage license online and that will greatly reduce face-to-face contact, and it may become necessary for an employee from our office to bring the paperwork to your vehicle to obtain the signatures. 

If you are elderly OR immunocompromised, and do not have the ability to utilize our online services, please call our office at 423-323-6428 and an employee will be happy to accommodate you. 

If you currently have a valid Passport, we ask that you refrain from obtaining your REAL ID through our office at this time, as it is not imperative to obtain a REAL ID when you already have a TSA approved document to travel domestically and internationally. 

Please check this website frequently, as any additional changes will be posted here, you can check our personal website at www.sullivancountyclerktn.com or you can follow us on social media on the Facebook page titled “Teresa Jacobs Sullivan County Clerk.  If you have any questions regarding current procedures, you can reach us anytime by calling the number listed above. 

We appreciate your patience and understanding as we navigate these unknown waters together. 

Teresa Jacobs,  Sullivan County Clerk
