Vermont’s courts are open, but they are operating differently than they were before the COVID-19 pandemic started. Like many public spaces, courthouses have had to adapt to rising and falling case numbers and as the understanding of COVID-19 has changed. The table below summarizes the kind of activity that is taking place in each of the state’s courthouses.

If you have questions about an upcoming hearing please check with your attorney or call the Judiciary’s Information Center at 802-652-1900 for the latest information. Please check your hearing notice as that will indicate whether your hearing is being held in-person or remotely.
