State Courthouses Opening to Public on Monday

All state courthouses will reopen fully to the public beginning Monday, Aug. 2.

Members of the public will no longer need to have a scheduled court proceeding or an
appointment in order to enter a state courthouse.

While court operations continued remotely during the COVID-19 pandemic, court facilities
were closed to the public in March 2020. Courthouses have been open for in-person temporary restraining order applications and child support payments since last summer and staffing at all court facilities has increased incrementally.

In-person criminal trials were held briefly last fall and resumed June 15. Grand juries began to
resume sessions in person also in mid-June.

The Judiciary will continue to monitor COVID-19 trends and look to the Centers for Disease
Control and Prevention and the state Department of Health for guidance and direction on its response to the pandemic.

    My husband got a ticket more than a year ago, and never heard from the court. Any idea if we have to locate the ticket and deal with it after all this time?
