Effective December 21, 2020, public hours at Maine courthouses will be reduced in response to the ongoing COVID-19 public health emergency. Unless a court is closed due to inclement weather, remote proceedings will continue as scheduled. Any person entering the courthouse must wear an approved face covering or mask, will have their temperature checked, and will be asked about exposure to or symptoms of COVID-19.
