36th District Court Announces Re-Opening of Court Facility for In-Person Transactions

Feb 07, 2022

The 36th District Court is pleased to announce that in-person business will resume on February 8, 2022.

The Court had previously limited access to the Court facility due to the highly infectious omicron variant of COVID-19. In recent days, the case positivity rate in the City of Detroit has fallen, and as such access to the building will now be expanded.

Chief Judge William C. McConico stated, “While the omicron variant is still cause for concern, we feel that we can safely re-open for in-person services at this time.  Though nearly all matters will continue to proceed virtually for the foreseeable future, we look forward to providing access to those who may have difficulty handling transactions virtually.”

Please note that masks are still required to be worn throughout the Court building, and health screenings are conducted prior to entry. The 36th District Court remains committed to protecting the health and safety of its staff, its bench, and the public it serves.  Careful consideration is given to the data provided by the Detroit Health Department when determining the level of in-person access to the Courthouse.

The Court appreciates the patience and understanding of all parties during this time.
