COVID-19 Coronavirus: Have a Court Hearing? Find Out What You Should Do.
Updated 5/18/2020 3:15 p.m.
The coronavirus (COVID-19) situation is changing all the time. The courts have declared a judicial emergency through September 1, 2020, which changes some of the ways courts operate. If you are scheduled for a court hearing in Vermont before September 1, check the Vermont Judiciary website or call your courthouse ahead of time. Your hearing may be postponed because of the virus outbreak. Or you may get approved to attend your court hearing over the phone or by video instead of going to the courthouse.
To protect everyone’s health, the Vermont courts are limiting who can go into the courthouses. Anyone who goes in must wear a mask over their nose and mouth.
