Chester County is currently in the Commonwealth of Pennsylvania's "Green Phase" as a result of the COVID-19 pandemic. As per the amendment to Administrative Order 9-2020, all court functions of the Court of Common Pleas and Magisterial District Courts were restored effective June 2, 2020. The only exception to this order is the continued suspension of jury trials. No jury trials shall begin sooner than August 3, 2020. All COVID-19 related safety precautions and protocols shall remain in effect while in the green phase. This includes social distancing, the wearing of masks while in the Justice Center and the Magisterial District Courts, staggered court proceedings and use of advanced communication technology when appropriate.
We appreciate your patience and understanding during this time. Please continue to follow all CDC and PA Department of Health guidelines to help control the spread of COVID-19 during the green phase. A reminder of the guidelines to be followed during the green phase are found here: https://restorechestercounty.org/Regulations.cfm
Judges are ultimately responsible for effective court management. However, the complexity of the modern court requires the delegation of administrative functions and responsibilities to the Court Administrator's Office subject to the supervision and direction of the President Judge.
