SUPERIOR COURT PRESS RELEASE
MARCH 10, 2022
FACE COVERING GUIDANCE AT THE COURTHOUSE
Based on information provided in Governor Jay Inslee’s press conference on February 28, 2022, Pierce County Superior Court plans to end its court-wide face covering requirement on March 12, 2022. Face coverings in Superior Court controlled offices and common spaces will be optional, provided, however, that each Superior Court Judicial Officer has the authority to mandate face coverings in a particular courtroom as circumstances dictate. The court will monitor guidance from our stakeholders to determine if face coverings would need to be reinstituted on a court-wide basis.
