Services During COVID-19

Due to the alarming surge in positive COVID-19 cases and record-breaking hospitalizations across the country and locally, Linn County is closing buildings to the public once again to help reduce community spread of the virus and to help ensure continuity of County services. The closure will take effect Thursday, November 19 and remain in effect until public health conditions improve and allow for modifications.

You may call our office to purchase a license over the phone wit a credit card; however most licenses can be purchased from the Iowa DNR. We encourage the public to continue using these remote service options.
