Only employees will be allowed into the DuPage County courthouse after 3 p.m. beginning Monday, March 30.

The order issued by Chief Judge Daniel P. Guerin in response to the COVID-19 pandemic will be in effect until April 17 but could be modified.

                                                                                                                                                                                                                       
 

"We are still conducting essential governmental functions and court business in the courthouse each day under a limited, restructured schedule," Guerin said in a news release. "However, there is an overriding public health and safety interest in reasonably restricting entry into the courthouse. This order serves to balance that interest while still ensuring effective and efficient access to justice for essential court business."

A drop box will be available at the courthouse entrance for time sensitive, essential court filings. Any such filings will be collected and processed each day by the circuit clerk's office.

Emergency numbers are:

• Circuit court clerk's office (civil) (630) 407-8700.

• Circuit court clerk's office (criminal and traffic) (630) 407-8600.

• Circuit court administration (630) 407-8901.

• Probation (630) 407-8500.

• Family shelter (630) 469-5650.

Afternoon bond court will be held at 4 p.m. in courtroom 1000 at the DuPage County jail.
