Yavapai County Buildings Closing to the Public for a Second Time
This Does NOT Apply to Superior or Justice Courts
On Monday July 6th, all Yavapai County buildings will once again be closed to the public due to the recent spike in Covid-19 positive test results. This does not mean that the County is not hard at work, it simply means that if you need to meet with someone in person you will need to contact the department, and we strongly recommend you wear a mask when you arrive.
Yavapai County Board of Supervisors Chairman Craig Brown said, “Once again we are closing our doors to the public but are still here to serve the public. Last time we had to close our doors, we were still here taking calls and meeting people at the door when necessary and it worked well. We know this will be an inconvenience but also know this is being done to stop the spread of Covid-19 and protect you and those who serve you.”
Yavapai County staff continues to work for you. Please call the department you would like to work with to setup an appointment at your convenience. There will be signs on the front doors with the phone numbers for each department located within each building and phone numbers for each department can also be located at Yavapai.us.
Court proceedings in Superior Court and Justice Courts in Yavapai County continue to be conducted in a manner that provides for the safety of the participants and court personnel and promotes social distancing as recommended by the CDC.
In order to continue court operations, the Presiding Judge of Yavapai County David L. Mackey issued Administrative Order 2020-11, which establishes procedures that allow the Courts to continue daily operations while following the recommendations of health officials to the extent possible and as permitted by law. The Order provides for citizens appearing telephonically for many types of court hearings, reducing the number of people appearing before a judge when hearings must be in-person, providing for the electronic filing of court paperwork and giving instructions for making court-related payments without going to the courthouses.
While the doors remain open in the Superior and Justice Courts, some Municipal and Magistrate Courts located within city buildings that may have been closed to daily walk in traffic but can be contacted by phone or email. Citizens seeking to obtain Protective Orders or other emergency relief in the areas impacted by city closures are urged to contact their local Court for further instruction or appear at one of our County Court buildings to request emergency orders.
