Contra Costa County Superior Court to Reopen May 26, 2020 at 8:00 am

As you all know, the Courts have been closed in Contra Costa County and many others since mid March when the State of California issued Shelter in Place orders which extended throughout the entire State. Courts have been accepting drop box and mail filings, however, hearings and the ease of filing documents in person has created a tremendous headache for many.


Contra Costa County Superior Court has issued a statement confirming that services will resume on May 26, 2020 at 8:00 am, there are several restrictions in place, as follows:


  • IF YOU ARE SICK, DO NOT COME TO THE COURT. NO ONE WHO IS SICK OR WHO IS EXHIBITING COVID-19 SYMPTOMS WILL BE PERMITTED TO ENTER ANY COURT FACILITY.

  • YOU MUST WEAR A MASK OR FACE COVERING TO ENTER ANY COURT FACILITY AND AT ALL TIMES WHILE INSIDE.

  • ANYONE ENTERING ANY COURT FACILITY WILL HAVE THEIR TEMPERATURE TAKEN. IF YOU HAVE A TEMPERATURE OF 100 DEGREES OR HIGHER, YOU WILL BE DENIED ENTRY FOR THAT DAY.

  • THE ABOVE INCLUDES THOSE WHO HAVE BEEN REQUESTED FOR JURY DUTY.

  • PLEASE EXPECT LONG LINES AND LONG WAIT TIMES. THE COURT WILL FOLLOW SOCIAL DISTANCING REQUIREMENTS AND BUILDING ACCESS WILL BE LIMITED. PLEASE OBEY ALL SIGNS. YOUR PATIENCE IS APPRECIATED.

  • CLERK’S OFFICES ARE OPEN 8:00 A.M. – 2:00 P.M., WITH PHONE HOURS FROM 10:00 A.M. – 2:00 P.M., UNTIL FURTHER NOTICE.

If you can file via Drop Box, it would be a good idea, as there will be long wait times to contend with.


It should also be noted that the Records Division will still be closed, with an unknown reopen date.
