Penobscot County commissioners voted unanimously on Tuesday to extend through May 15, the closure of county offices to the public due to the coronavirus epidemic.

Offices including the jail, sheriff’s office, registry of deeds, registry of probate, the probate court and other departments have been closed to the public since March 18.

People who need to file documents with the deeds or probate offices may do so online. There is a dropbox in the vestibule for paperwork that must be dropped off.

Commissioners have been meeting remotely several times a month to conduct county business. Those meetings are available to the public on the county’s Facebook page.
