16 Mar Public Service Announcement Regarding COVID-19
Public Service Announcement:
On behalf of the Maverick County District Clerk’s office Polo Vielma:
After careful consideration and conferring with the 293rd District Court, we have decided to cancel the Court Jury Summons scheduled for March 27th . While there are still no reported cases of community spread of COVID-19 in the County, this suspension of Jury service is taken in abundance of caution and the interest of public health.
Any juror summoned for March 27th will not be penalized for not appearing for your jury summons. We will continue to monitor the situation and notify the public of any updates. If you have any questions, please call 830-773-2629.
On behalf of the 293rd District Court and the District Clerk’s office we encourage persons with flu-like symptoms scheduled to appear to contact the court before appearing. Likewise, attorneys who have clients and witnesses with such conditions should also alert the court in advance. Court will make reasonable accommodation as necessary. The general public is also urged to take extra precautions, so as to diminish potential spread of the contagion.
