The health and safety of all patrons and employees of the Jefferson County Circuit Court is of the utmost importance to the court. We are maintaining regular communication with our state and local public health and emergency management professionals to monitor the developing situation with the novel coronavirus (COVID-19). In partnership with our state and local preparedness partners, we have developed a comprehensive response plan. We are taking all necessary and available measures to maintain a safe and sanitary space for all employees and patrons of our court.

The court recognizes that requiring people to congregate in close proximity for any period of time is now risky. Therefore, effective March 13, 2020, Jefferson County Circuit Court has cancelled all jury trials through April 30, 2020, to be rescheduled as conditions allow.

Grand Jurors are still required to report to the courthouse for grand jury service.
