In response to the ongoing COVID-19 emergency, Chief Judge Mark Mahon issued Administrative Order 2020-09 on March 25 restricting access to the Duval County Courthouse until April 10.

WJCT News partner the Jacksonville Daily Record reports the general public will not be allowed to enter the courthouse unless their name is listed on the court docket or they are an attorney representing the person on the docket.

People may enter if their safety is at risk and they need an emergency injunction and in the clerk's or presiding judge's discretion must be present at the courthouse to conduct essential business.

People who meet the criteria will be cleared through a COVID-19 screening process and must have a photo ID to enter.

In addition, the order suspends all future tax deed sales until further notice.
