Face masks are required for everyone entering a court facility, with no exceptions. Please bring your own face mask if you have one. If you do not possess one, a disposable mask will be provided to you. Face masks must completely cover the nose and mouth and fit snugly around the nose, chin, and sides of the face. They may be single-use disposable masks, cloth masks, clear face masks, or cloth masks with clear plastic panels. A face shield may be used in addition to a face mask, but may not be used as an alternative to a face mask.
All individuals shall observe social distancing within courthouses by maintaining the recommended minimum six-foot distance from other individuals even when wearing a face mask and while in elevators. Frequently sanitize your hands while you are in the courthouse.
You are encouraged to bring hand sanitizer in a 3 oz. or less pour or pump-style plastic bottle. Spray bottles are not permitted inside the courthouse.
Please bring information regarding your court case, including case number, name of the presiding judge, date and time of your hearing.
