7/10/2020 7:58:00 AM Face covering to be required for all court hearings
Face coverings will be mandatory for anyone in a court facility, including judges and staff, beginning Monday, according to an order issued today by Minnesota Supreme Court Chief Justice Lorie S. Gildea. The order requires that people wear their own face coverings when they will be doing business in person with a district or appellate court.
Visitors to any of the 105 court facilities should talk to court staff immediately upon entry if they do not have access to a face covering or have a medical condition that prevents them from wearing one. Visitors who do not have access to a face covering will be provided one.
Before visiting a court facility, court users should visit the Safe Reopening webpage to learn more about local court facility access.
