Limited In-Person Activities at Court Facilities
To continue operations consistent with public health guidance and in a manner that prioritizes health and safety, the Minnesota Judicial Branch is extending its limitation of in-person activities in court facilities for 45 days effective February 1, 2021:
- Remote Hearings: All hearings will be conducted remotely to the extent possible. Exceptions may be granted for in-person proceedings under limited circumstances.
- Criminal Jury Trials: No new jury trials will begin before March 15, 2021, unless the Chief Judge grants an exception. Exceptions shall be granted for criminal cases that meet three criteria - speedy trial, in-custody defendant, and felony or non-felony person crime - unless a trial cannot be held safely due to local conditions.
- Civil Jury Trials: No in-person civil jury trials will be held before March 15, 2021. Exceptions may be granted in limited circumstances. A civil jury trial may take place remotely if all parties and the judge are in agreement.
- Public Access: At least one counter service window must be open during normal business hours, excluding court holidays. Services may be provided remotely or by appointment only. See below for more information.
- Self-Help Center services are available by phone and email.
Face coverings are required in all court facilities. If you do not have a face covering, see court staff immediately.
If you are required to visit a court facility but have COVID-19 symptoms or have had COVID-19 exposure in the last 14 days contact the court
or your attorney as soon as possible.

Public Access to a Wright Court Facilities Public service counter and a public access terminal (courthouse terminals) are available during normal business hours. Please be advised wait times may be longer due to decreased staff in the office.
Anyone pursuing in person assistance from court administration staff must wear a face covering, per the Supreme Court Order issued on July 7, 2020. Staff will not be able to assist customers who refuse to wear a face covering. If you do not have a face covering court staff will supply one for you.
