Coronavirus Information for Jurors

We are closely monitoring the threat of the Coronavirus and we’ll update this page as new developments occur that impacts our jurors.

The court has resumed jury trials.  Some trials will be conducted in-person and some trials will be conducted virtually via the ZoomGov.com platform. 

Per General Order 07-22 issued on July 8, 2022, masks or face coverings are required upon building entry and in all public areas of the courthouse. Court Security Officers are authorized to ask if an individual has read the “Conditions of Entry”, and to deny entry of persons who confirm that they are currently diagnosed with COVID-19 or have experienced COVID-19 symptoms in the last five days. The trial judge may require full masking in the courtroom

Potential jurors who are in any of the higher-risk categories are urged to email the court at jury@wawd.uscourts.gov if you wish to postpone your service up to three months.  Please state that you want to postpone your service and specify which higher risk category applies to you. 

Higher-Risk Categories:

  • Have underlying health conditions including heart disease, lung disease, or diabetes
  • Have a weakened immune system
  • Are pregnant

For all other jurors who do not fall into any of the higher-risk categories, please remain available to serve -- unless you are eligible to postpone your service for other reasons or hardships.
