COVID 19 Courtroom Guidelines

Screening at Check-in: We will be screening all people entering the building for Court. The screening will involve answering a few questions and having your temperature taken. The person who is set for court is the only one who may come in the Courtroom. Others will have to wait outside or in the car. This is to limit the number of people in the Courtroom and doing our part to social distance. If the person is a Juvenile, only one Parent or Guardian will be allowed to accompany the Juvenile.

Masks

Everyone including visitors and staff are required to wear a mask when in the building.

Children are also required to wear a mask as well.

By wearing a mask, it is one of the best ways to limit the transmission of the virus.

Social Distancing

Social distancing, means keeping space between yourself and other people outside of your home. To practice social or physical distancing:

  • Stay at least 6 feet (about 2 arms’ length) from other people
  • Do not gather in groups

Clean your hands often

     Wash your hands often with soap and water for at least 20 seconds especially after you have been in a public place, or after blowing your nose, coughing, or sneezing.

     If soap and water are not readily available, use a hand sanitizer that contains at least 60% alcohol. Cover all surfaces of your hands and rub them together until they feel dry. Avoid touching your eyes, nose, and mouth with unwashed hands

We appreciate your understanding and patience as we all work to keep everyone safe and we look forward to seeing you in our office. Please contact the Court if you have any questions.
