Email and telephone services will continue on the regular schedule of 8 am to 5 pm Monday through Friday, although there will likely be longer wait times for phone calls. During this time of adjusted operations, customers are encouraged to connect with DRS through the secure email option in their online accounts.

Customers who need a notary stamp are asked to call or email DRS so we can make arrangements to assist.

DRS continues to follow state directives and other guidance to slow the spread of COVID-19, including expanded teleworking by team members, minimizing personal contacts and promoting social distancing.
