Amended Seventh Court of San Mateo County Emergency Response Calendar Memo Order to Novel Coronavirus Pandemic
The COVID-19 crisis continues, with no end in sight. In recent weeks the number of cases has been rising. Because of COVID-19, this Court was forced to take definitive action on our provision of court services to the public. As a result, on March 16, 2020, the Court issued a “Second Amended Court’s Emergency Response to Novel Coronavirus Pandemic.” The purpose of this Calendar Memo Order was to temporarily discontinue all courtroom and public services that were deemed non-essential. The plan substantially reduced the number of visits by the public to the courthouse and minimized exposure to our court judicial officers and staff, who had to maintain our court services.
