Individuals needing to transact business with the clerk’s office will need to use a drop box to be located in the Caribou Police Department. These measures are being reinstituted in an abundance of caution due to a potential COVID exposure in the clerk’s office and needing to safeguard the public until appropriate testing is completed.
