For General Public Print E-mail

Cleaning and disinfecting efforts have been intensified throughout all court facilities, especially with respect to surfaces commonly touched like railings, doorknobs, etc.

Pursuant to General Order 1.03:   

All attorneys and members of the public are strongly encouraged to wear a face covering or mask while within any court facility.  If Court Security, a bailiff, a clerk, jury commission staff or other court staff offer a mask to an attorney or member of the public, that person is required to wear the mask.  Failure to wear an offered mask may lead to removal from the building.  These provisions do not apply to any individual under age 2 or medically unable to tolerate wearing a face covering or mask. 

No individual should enter any courthouse or court facility if they have:

Flu-like symptoms including fever, cough or shortness of breath;

Been diagnosed with COVID-19 (or someone close to you has);

Been directed to quarantine, isolate or self-monitor at home by any medical provider;

Traveled, within the last 21 days, to any country designated by the CDC as a high-risk location for COVID-19; or

Had close contact within anyone who has traveled to any of these high risk locations.

Illness - If you have a scheduled court hearing and begin to feel ill, you should consider the following:      

    Contact the opposing party or attorney to explore an agreed continuance

    If there is no agreement, contact the circuit clerk’s office to advise if you are unable to attend court.  Judges will consider on a case-by-case basis whether a continuance of the court date is in order.  Providing medical documentation of your condition will likely help.
