  COVID-19 Information & Updates on Court Operations

Last Updated: 5/26/2021 at 11:00 am

  Jury Trials Have Resumed:
Effective March 1, 2021: The Riverside Superior Court has resumed jury trials (General Order 2021-9) (pdf ) If you have been summoned for jury service, please check your status before reporting.

    Attention: Do Not Come to the Courthouse If You Are Not Feeling Well:
Those who are feeling ill or experiencing COVID-19 symptoms as described by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, including but not limited to fever or chills, cough, shortness of breath or difficulty breathing, fatigue, muscle body ache, headache, new loss of taste or smell, sore throat, congestion or runny nose, nausea or vomiting, or diarrhea, or have been diagnosed with COVID-19 are prohibited from entering any court facility or courthouse (General Order 2020-42) (pdf ) .

    Update: Face Coverings Still Required to Enter County Courthouses:
The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) (external site ) has issued new guidance (external site ) on vaccinated persons. Please know that the Riverside Superior Court continues to follow local guidance (external site ) from the County and State Departments of Public Health to ensure the safety of all court users, judicial officers and employees while balancing access to justice during the COVID-19 pandemic. At this time, all safety protocols including face coverings and social distancing (See General Order 2020-67) (pdf ) are still in place at all court locations until further notice. Court security will turn away anyone not wearing a face covering prior to security screening.

The Riverside Superior Court is committed to protecting the health and safety of our community while performing our constitutional duties. Following guidelines provided by Governor Newsom’s executive orders and the County of Riverside’s orders by the Public Health Officer, the court has restored most court functions and has resumed hearings in certain case types. Some courthouses are closed until further notice. Clerk’s offices are only open to the public for specific limited emergency matters and have limited public hours. Customers may submit documents for filing either online via the eSubmit Document Submission Portal, by U.S. Mail, or by placement in a drop box at one of our court facilities (See charts below for details).

The Riverside Superior Court may be frequently changing the services available to the public. Given the fluid nature of this COVID-19 crisis, and the ever-changing availability of resources, you are encouraged to check this website frequently.

Jurors


Due to constitutional requirements the Court has summoned jurors for a limited number of jury trials. Cases with constitutional and statutory timeframes approaching will have priority.

The Court remains committed to keeping jurors, attorneys, staff and all other court users safe and has worked with the Riverside County Public Health Officer to develop protocols designed to protect the health and safety of jurors.

If you receive a summons in the mail, please do not discard it. You may check your status or request a postponement through one of the following options:

If you are sick or are experiencing flu-like symptoms (such as fever, cough, shortness of breath), please request a postponement of up to 90 days.
