Kane County Court building requiring face coverings
All persons entering any Kane County Court building must wear a face covering beginning Friday, Chief Judge Clint Hull said in a news release.
Hull said the order aims to protect the health of the general public and courthouse employees from potential exposure to the COVID 19 virus in areas where it may not be possible to practice responsible social distancing at all times while conducting court business.
In an emergency, and where a person has no covering or mask available, there may be a small supply of masks at the Judicial Center available for use. Those masks have been sewn by the inmates at the Kane County Adult Corrections Center.
If no masks are available, other alternative means may be initiated, including contacting the person by phone to complete court petitions or orders and conducting the hearing remotely by teleconference or video.
