RALEIGH, NC— SCONC Chief Justice Cheri Beasley has issued new emergency directives in response to the COVID-19 pandemic that requires the wearing of face coverings inside county courthouses and planning for the resumption of jury trials.

Beasley announced Thursday that jury trials in North Carolina courts will be delayed through at least September, and has directed senior resident superior court judges to develop comprehensive plans for the eventual safe resumption of jury trials in their districts. Each Jury Trial Resumption Plan must ensure that all court operations are in compliance with each of the Chief Justice’s emergency directives and must be informed by the Best Safety Practices distributed by the North Carolina Administrative Office of the Courts.
