Effective March 16, 2020 at 5 p.m., all non-essential functions of the courts have been postponed until further notice. Doran added that each county within the 7th Judicial District has consolidated court operations into one building for essential court matters as outlined in the attached Administrative Order. In Monroe County, a core team of essential staff (including judges) are available at the Hall of Justice in Rochester to manage essential court matters. Cayuga, Livingston, Ontario, Seneca, Steuben, Wayne and Yates Counties have also consolidated court matters to one location and have staff and judges available when essential matters arise. Other changes implemented in the 7th Judicial District to protect health and safety include:

• If an essential court proceeding is scheduled, only litigants and their attorneys will be permitted in the courthouse – (family and friends will not be permitted.)

• Cancelling or postponing all in-person meetings that do not involve court proceedings scheduled to occur in 7th Judicial District Courthouses through the end of April of 2020.

“Protecting the health and safety of all who work in or enter our courthouses in the 7th Judicial District remains our top priority,” Doran said. “Emergency preparedness in the courts is ongoing, and in response to the threat of the Coronavirus or COVID-19, the 7th Judicial District has been working

proactively in collaboration with the Office of Court Administration (OCA), county officials and the legal community to implement local plans focused on infection control through safety protocols and reducing foot traffic through our courts.”

The 7th Judicial District will continue to carefully monitor the situation and encourage anyone with court-related questions to call or email their local courthouses. Contact information and information related to New York State Court postponements is available online for all courthouses in the 7th Judicial District on the New York State Unified Court System Website at www.NYCourts.gov.

For minor reports, Officers will likely provide you with the report number and complete the report without personal interaction.

Please be prepared to step outside of your home to meet with the officer in an open environment. This consistent with the recommended social distancing to curb the spread of this illness.

Additionally, our Police Department lobby is now closed to the public. It will not be staffed to accommodate any walk-in complaints until further notice.

We will continue to respond accordingly to any emergency calls for service.

We would like to thank the public for your cooperation and understanding during this challenging time.

From the Seneca County Clerk’s Office:
