New Courthouse COVID Protocols Effective July 6
The Judiciary has announced new Courthouse COVID protocols for Vermont state courthouses, effective Tuesday, July 6.
Please find this message of July 1 from CAO Pat Gabel to the Judiciary, generally explaining the protocols. (There was a delay with making the announcement to the bar because of overlapping vacation leaves, for which CAO Gabel has expressed her regret.)
Here’s a LINK to Amended Administrative Directive PG -13 dated July 1, 2021, detailing the protocols and including information about masks, social distancing, and health screening questions.
Here’s a LINK to information available to the public on the Judiciary website regarding the protocols, including a list of Vermont courthouses not currently open to the public. Persons who have questions about their cases are encouraged to contact their attorney or to call the Judiciary Information Center at 802-652-1900.
Lastly, here’s a LINK to a press release about the new protocols that the Judiciary released on July 2.
