If you are experiencing symptoms of COVID-19 (fever, cough, difficulty breathing), or believe you have been exposed to the virus, please do not come to the courthouse.


The court is open, effective Monday, January 4, 2021, with continued strict social distancing in place.

  • If you are SICK, do not enter the building.
  • Masks or face coverings will be required to enter the building.
  • All persons entering the courthouse building will be screened for COVID-19, consisting of a temperature scan and some questions.
  • Pending criminal case?  Contact your attorney.  Your attorney may be able to appear for you in court, so you don’t have to go to court.  You may search for your case information on the Portal link, “Online Case Access” to the left.
  • Social distancing areas are marked out on the floor in BLUE tape. 
  • Courtroom seating is very limited.  You may be asked to wait on the front lawn area and if so, you will be called in to the building when the court can hear your case.
  • Wait time for window clerks, as well as for phone calls, may be longer than usual.
