ADMINISTRATIVE ORDER EXTENDING THE LENGTH OF STATEWIDE JUDICIARY RESTRICTED OPERATIONS DUE TO THE COVID-19 EMERGENCY THROUGH MAY 1, 2020:  

  • A juror who reported to our courthouse for jury duty on March 9 and March 12 has since tested positive for COVID-19. The juror was not assigned to a jury, but rather was released on March 12.

Out of an abundance of caution, anyone serving Jury Duty on those days and experiencing symptoms should call their primary care provider or the Anne Arundel County Health Department COVID-19 Health Line at 410-222-7256, Monday - Friday 7:30 a.m. - 9 p.m., Saturday - Sunday 10 a.m. - 4 p.m. or email covid19info@aacounty.org.
