FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
Effective Monday, Feb. 1, and until further notice, the Springfield Municipal Court will resume normal operations. In the interest of public health, the Springfield Municipal Court continues to take measures to reduce exposure to, and transmission of, COVID-19, including:
The following persons will be denied entry to the courthouse and must contact the court by phone at 417-864-1890, by regular mail at 625 N. Benton, Springfield, MO 65806, or by e-mail at [email protected] to receive further instructions on their case.
The following strategies to minimize COVID-19 transmission have been implemented at the court:
Personal face mask or covering to be appropriately worn by any non-employee entering the courthouse unless a medical or other condition substantially inhibiting such use is alleged to, and verified by, court security. Any disputes in this regard shall be immediately brought to a judge by court security and the dispute shall be resolved before the objecting person enters the courthouse, if at all. Masks and face coverings may be personal or court supplied, but the public is asked to supply their own mask if at all possible. Court-supplied masks shall be “one-use” only.
Social distancing protocol mandating that an individual in the public areas of the courthouse (including courtrooms) is located at one, and only one, of these areas:
Security checkpoint protocol to include, as circumstances allow, temperature checks and screening questions before any non-employee may enter the courthouse.
Occupancy limits of:
“Persons” includes judges, court staff, prosecutors and prosecutor staff.
Heightened sanitation and disinfection of common and high-traffic areas including additional hand sanitizers and wipes (as available), sanitizing stations, and cleaning solutions.
Persons potentially exposed to COVID-19 should contact their health care provider immediately.
