Therefore, we are following all recommended guidelines provided by the CDC to ensure the safety and health of all individuals.   

Please note the following temporary changes to our normal procedures until further notice:

•There will be limited access to our courthouse and buildings in order to ensure adequate     
  social distancing.
•Detention Center visitation for all residents has been cancelled.  
•Additional phone calls for residents will be scheduled.
•All Non-Essential Trials, Probation programs, community service and leadership and
  gardening programs are temporarily suspended.

Thank you for your attention and please do not hesitate to contact us at (251) 574-1450 for further information or any questions you may have.  

If you have any symptoms of the disease (fever, cough, shortness of breath) or have recently traveled to an area with widespread or ongoing community spread of COVID-19 please understand that we cannot allow your entry into our buildings.
