As of April 1, 2022 the office is again open to the public, and application packages will be accepted in the lobby or via delivery to the 24/7 outside drop box. Meetings with staff are by appointment only.

Effective March 14, 2022, masks and face coverings will no longer be required for state employees, customers, and visitors indoors in all state executive branch offices and buildings during periods of low or medium community transmission when the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention’s (“CDC”) COVID-19 Community Transmission Level is low (green) or medium (yellow). However, masks will be required in state executive branch offices and buildings during periods of elevated community transmission when CDC’s COVID-19 Community Transmission Level is high (red).

Regardless of the COVID-19 community transmission level, employees returning during days 6-10 of isolation or quarantine shall still be required to wear a mask. Although not required for other individuals, any employee, customer, or visitor may choose to wear a mask.  For example, the following employees, customers, or visitors may wish to continue to wear a mask: those who are immunocompromised or live with persons at high risk for severe COVID-19 illness; those individuals who are concerned about disease transmission; and those individuals participating in activities or settings with an increased risk of transmission.
