Please be aware the Nineteenth Judicial Circuit is no longer requiring the use of face masks and physical distancing in the courthouses. However, an individual within any courthouse may choose to wear a face mask, if preferable.
Courthouse visitors may request a face mask at the public courthouse entrances and a disposable face mask will be provided. During in-person court proceedings the presiding judge or other judicial officer will address requests for clear plastic face masks or shields as may be appropriate under the circumstances at the time of the request.
Note that several court proceedings will continue to be conducted remotely. Please contact the Clerk of Court office for questions relating to your scheduled appearance in the courthouse.
