Administrative Order 20-05
Members of the public are required to wear masks that cover the nose and mouth at all times in the courthouse. Members of the public are encouraged to bring their own masks. Masks will be offered to persons who arrive without a mask. Any person who declines to wear a mask does not have permission to remain in the courthouse, will not be provided any services and will not be considered present or be allowed to be heard in any court proceeding except to address the absence of a mask. The mask requirement does not apply to persons under age 10 and may be waived for persons who cannot wear a mask for medical reasons. When necessary for the fair administration of court proceedings, a presiding judge may authorize a stationary person (that is a person who is not moving from one place to another) to remove their mask when necessary for the court proceeding. For example, a presiding judge might determine it is necessary that masks be removed by a testifying witness, a prospective juror during voir dire, a person to be identified, or a party, lawyer, judge or other person whose mask inappropriately impairs their ability to participate in the judicial proceeding.
