Starting on Monday, July 6, the Circuit Court of Cook County will resume in-person court proceedings, with the exception of jury trials. However, the circuit court will continue to hold hearings by videoconference whenever it is reasonably possible.
To avoid an unnecessary trip to the courthouse, all litigants should consult with their legal counsel or the Clerk of the Circuit Court for information about whether to appear in-person, or for instructions for participating in virtual court proceedings.
Those who do have to go to court in-person are reminded that a face covering is required in all courthouses. Anyone seeking to enter a courthouse without a face covering or who fails a wellness screening administered at the courthouse will be denied entry.
Those seeking information about when they need to attend court should visit CookCountyClerkofCourt.org or call 312-603-5030 for details on how to receive court dates via email and text message.
