Dear Prospective Juror,
We find ourselves living in extraordinary times due to the COVID-19 virus. Each of us has been affected in some way by this pandemic. There are many efforts underway within our court system, both locally and statewide. We have purposely implemented these efforts in an attempt to slow the spread of the COVID-19 virus. When you report for jury duty, you will notice significant changes in the daily operation of court functions. I encourage you to watch this short video which addresses your health and safety as our top priority, (www.shawneecourt.org/413/Jurors-COVID-19-Video).
What we’re doing to protect you:
- Cleaning and sanitizing
- Physical distancing
- Symptom screening
- Requiring masks and providing hand sanitizer
What we need you to do:
- Wash your hands
- Wear a mask
- Tell us if you are sick
- Tell us if you are at high risk
Certain health conditions and contact with or travel to some geographical regions may need to excuse or defer your jury services. Questions about the process and requests for excusals and deferrals should be directed to Jennifer Hix, Jury Coordinator, at (785) 251-6787 or email firstname.lastname@example.org. Given the constant changes in health guidelines, there is a possibility your date to report for jury duty may change.
The evening before your service date, please check the current schedule on the court’s website (www.shawneecourt.org/316/Jury-Duty) or call the jury trial phone line at (785) 251-5500 after 5:00 p.m. You will be provided with specific information and instructions.
We appreciate your participation in this important process and commend you for upholding your civic duty of jury service in these challenging times.
