Measures to Reduce Coronavirus (COVID-19) Exposure

March 9, 2020

To reduce the chances of coronavirus exposure, the court will allow participation by telephone for all hearings that do not involve testimony (non-evidentiary hearings). Information about participating in court hearings via telephone is available under the Hearings heading. The telephone lines will be open for all non-evidentiary hearings, and participants who want to appear by phone do not need to submit a written request.

For evidentiary hearings and trials, the court will consider written requests (motions) for accommodations or postponements on a case-by-case basis.

If you need to request an accommodation for a meeting of creditors, please contact the trustee.

Please do not come to the court if you are ill with an elevated temperature, cough, or respiratory symptoms. Bankruptcy petitions may be mailed to either office of the court. Installment payments may be made by mail or online. Copies of bankruptcy papers may be requested via the court's email contact form.
