CORPUS CHRISTI, Texas — Beginning tomorrow, the Nueces County Courthouse will allow for limited activities in the building.

"Nueces County is open for business," County Judge Barbara Canales said.

The county's disaster declaration has been extended.

The tax office will be closed to public face-to-face interaction beginning tomorrow. There will be a drop box and their entire staff will continue working.

Clerks will answer questions by phone. E-checks can be made through the county's payment portal as well as online, mail, dropbox and telephone.

They urge not to put cash in mail or drop box with checks and money order only.

Taxes can be paid online with a credit card. The Texas Department of Motor Vehicles will renew auto tags. Title vehicle transfers can be done in Robstown or at the courthouse's drop box.

Also, Sheriff J.C. Hooper says visitation at Nueces County Jails is canceled this weekend. The Sheriff will re-evaluate on a week-to-week basis moving forward.

All of this information will be published on the Nueces County website here.
