The Cumming Municipal Court has issued guidelines that call for face masks, temperature checks and social distancing, among other requirements.

Anyone entering the Cumming Municipal Court will have to wear a face mask, have their temperature checked and maintain six feet of distancing from others, according to COVID-19 inspired operating guidelines that took effect this week.

Persons with a temperature of 100 degrees or greater will be denied entry, the guidelines say. Counsel can remove a mask when addressing the court, questioning witnesses or making an argument; and others, when testifying.

Occupancy will be limited to no more than three cases/defendants at a time and 20 or fewer persons “including the clerk, prosecutor, court security officer, interpreter (if necessary) and judge.”

Hand sanitizer will be provided; people will be encouraged to wash their hands frequently; and frequent cleaning and disinfection will be required of table tops, chairs, witness stand, lectern and other common surfaces in frequent use.
