Courthouse Mask Mandate Ends

As of today, you are no longer required to wear a mask in Connecticut courthouses. The State of Connecticut Judicial Branch official announcement reads as follows:

03/03/22 — Effective Monday, March 7, 2022, the Judicial Branch will suspend the requirement of wearing a mask when entering a Judicial Branch facility. If COVID-19 activity increases in the state, mask use by individuals may again be required. Also effective March 7, 2022, the Judicial Branch requests but is not requiring jurors and prospective jurors to wear a mask while in the jury assembly room or the jury deliberation room. Mask wearing is an effective prevention strategy against the spread of COVID-19 and other respiratory diseases. As such, the Judicial Branch supports an individual’s decision to wear a mask and to socially distance when indoors, if possible.
