Wisconsin courts are monitoring coronavirus concerns throughout the state and leaving it up to local officials to change court calendars and operational procedures.
Director of State Courts Randy Koschnick said on Wednesday that the court system is working with state and local health officials for information about how to best protect the judiciary, court staff and the public from the virus.
Koschnick said any decision to limit or monitor access to public buildings, order quarantines, or modify court calendars or procedures will be decided locally by the counties or circuit courts.
Attorneys or litigants with questions about coming court activity should get in touch with the appropriate county’s clerk of circuit court.
Koschnick said his office and court administrators will continue to monitor the situation to decide if additional steps are necessary. Follow @WLJReporter
