COVID-19 Operating Plan
Individuals who are over the age of 65 and individuals with serious underlying health conditions such as high blood pressure, chronic lung disease, diabetes, obesity, asthma, and whose immune systems are compromised such as by chemotherapy for cancer or other conditions requiring such therapy are considered to be vulnerable populations.
Vulnerable populations who are scheduled for court will be accommodated by resetting them for court at a later date at the request of the individual.
