With the Wright County Emergency Declaration that was adopted March 17 in the battle with the COVID-19, in preventing community spread of the virus, the Wright County Board of Commissioners voted to close all public facing counters in county offices and departments.
• Beginning Monday, April 6, deputy registrars may offer motor vehicle title and registration services in accordance with Executive Order 20-20 and CISA guidance.
• OVER THE COUNTER, FACE-TO-FACE SERVICES ARE PROHIBITED.
• Deputy registrars are not required to provide services and may remain closed for the duration of Executive Order 20-20.
• Each office must determine how it can offer service while adhering to Executive Order 20-20 and social distancing recommendations. Such as: Drop boxes
• Deputy registrars cannot process driver’s license and identification cards. Gov. Walz signed a bill into law March 28 that provides an extension for Minnesotans whose driver's licenses or ID cards expire during the peacetime emergency.
The law extends the expiration date for any valid driver's license, instruction permit, provisional license, operator's permit, limited license, and farm work license that would expire during the peacetime emergency. The expiration dates for these licenses will be extended for two months after the month the peacetime emergency ends.
