    Recognizing the need to ensure the health and safety of litigants, attorneys, visitors, court staff, judges, and other individuals entering the court, Guadalupe County has implemented protective measures in the Operating Plan for the Guadalupe County Judiciary (pdf).

    The Governor has issued and renewed the disaster proclamation for the State of Texas and the Supreme Court has issued and extended Emergency Orders, with current orders located at txcourts.gov. The most recent Order continues to provide flexibility to courts to conduct proceedings remotely and provides revised criteria in order for courts to safely conduct in-person proceedings.

    For safety, in-person proceedings involve limited numbers of participants, staggered timeframes, social distancing of 3 feet recommended, optional mask wearing and use of hand sanitizer. Please note these safety guidelines are subject to change as updated information is received from the Office of Court Administration. Anyone exhibiting COVID-19 symptoms or under quarantine should not attend court and must contact the Court Coordinator to make necessary schedule changes.
