Increased Precautions for Birth Certificate Customers

Posted on:
Lorain County Public Heath expects more guests requesting birth certificates since the Ohio BMV offices open on Tuesday, May 26, 2020.

In order to keep 6 feet of space between people, a maximum of 7 customers will be allowed inside the Vital Statistics lobby. Once we reach the 7-person limit, we will take names and phone numbers of all customers who arrive when the lobby is full. We kindly ask that you return to your car and we will call you when it is your turn in line. If possible, we request that only one person from your family enter the building and all other family members and friends remain in the car. Our lobby hours are 8 a.m. - 4 p.m. Monday through Friday. If you have any questions please call us at 440-322-6367 during our business hours.
Birth certificates are still available online through the VitalCheck website or over the phone, call 1-888-290-0228. VitalCheck charges an additional fee. All major credit cards are accepted.
