Reduced Public Hours at Courthouses due to COVID-19

Remote proceedings will continue as scheduled and certain documents may be filed by email. See PMO-SJC-3 and PMO-SJC-3A. Any person entering the courthouse must wear an approved face covering or mask, will have their temperatures checked, and will be asked about exposure to or symptoms of COVID-19.
