Announcements & Notices

COVID-19 Weekly Update 11-17

Effective close of business Thursday November 19, 2020, Jackson County shall suspend all in-person hearings.  This decision was made based upon the 2 week average positivity rate of 15.36% and in consultation with the Jackson County Department of Health.  Jackson County shall remain in a “modified Phase 2” status with NO in person hearings until further order.  ALL court proceedings will be conducted remotely.  The Jackson County Clerk of Court will remain open at this time.

Bay County has exceeded the 10% threshold for positivity rates, but will remain in its current status for another week to determine if there is an upward trend of cases impacting the health of our patrons, attorneys, clerks and Court administration.

The remaining four counties in the 14th Circuit are seeing increased cases but ALL remain in Phase 2 with in-person hearings permitted.
