Jury Service COVID-19 Response

COVID-19 Virus Response for Jurors
Clark County Courts are committed to keeping jurors, attorneys, staff and all other court users safe and in line with CDC and Public Health guidelines has developed the following protocols designed to protect the health and safety of jurors. These protocols include:
  • providing KN95 face masks for all jurors;
  • reconfiguring jury assembly rooms, courtrooms and lobbies to allow for social distancing;
  • contracting with an alternative reporting location configured to allow for greater social distancing and minimize the number of jurors reporting to the one location;
  • calling at staggered time intervals to reduce the number of jurors reporting at the same time;
  • ensuring sanitizing stations are readily available; and
  • implementing heightened cleaning protocols that include sanitation of jury reporting locations between groups, and common and high-traffic areas of the Courthouse.
 

 

Jurors should NOT report if they are feeling ill, experiencing symptoms of COVID-19, have been exposed to COVID-19 in the last 5 days, or have been instructed to quarantine.

Jurors experiencing illness or under quarantine are required to contact Jury Administration at 564-397-2049 or juries@clark.wa.gov to reschedule their jury service. If a juror reports for service and is ill, Jury Management staff will collect the badge number, send the juror home, and reschedule the juror for a later date.
