News from the Court Regarding Face Masks

Presiding Judge Judith Matarazzo has considered current COVID-19 transmission data and feedback from judges, staff, lawyers, jurors and others, and has decided to continue to require that face masks be worn in Multnomah County Courthouses in all public areas. At their discretion, a judge presiding over a trial or other proceeding may authorize any person participating in the trial or proceeding to temporarily remove the protective face covering to facilitate communication as the judge deems appropriate. This policy will be revisited in May.
