  • When you arrive, all visitors must use the iPad Check-in system and sign in at the front door.  
  • Once you have checked in for Court, please return to your car to await a text message from the courtroom notifying you when the judge is ready for your case.
  • Once you have received the text message, be prepared to show it to the front door security along with proper identification.  
  • If you do not have a vehicle, or your phone is not with you, please advise Court Security and use one of the socially distanced, marked spaces along the sidewalk to wait until Court Security calls you into the building.  
  • The court officer will take everyone’s temperature with a touchless forehead scanning thermometer prior to entry.  
  • Only parties to a case are allowed entry to the court. Anyone wishing to watch the proceedings may do so via YouTube Live.  
  • All visitors and attorneys must wear a mask/face covering.  If you do not have a mask/face covering, one will be provided for you.
  • After screening, Court Security will direct parties to the proper courtroom.
