Missouri Judiciary launches interactive tool as courts enter phased approach to reopening

Missouri Judiciary launches interactive tool as courts enter phased approach to reopening

JEFFERSON CITY, MO (STL.News) The Missouri Courts’ main COVID-19 alerts page has been redeveloped to enable users to determine quickly the phase in which a court is operating as courts begin the process of reopening under the Supreme Court of Missouri’s May 4 order and administrative guidelines, which become effective tomorrow.

Circuit court and appellate court information will be available using the drop-down menus or the interactive maps (which toggle between circuit/county and appellate district views).  Clicking on any county or district will take users to a page with the court’s notices and orders.  The map is followed by a searchable, sortable table for municipal division information. If there is specific information available for a particular municipal division, it will be included in the table.  Otherwise, the municipal division may be covered by a countywide order.  Clicking on the hyperlinked name of the municipal division will take users to a page with the division’s notices and orders.

Both the maps and the table are color-coded according to operating phase. A key to the operating phases also is included on the COVID alerts page.  Pursuant to the Court’s order and administrative guidelines, all courts currently are operating in Phase Zero; they may begin moving to Phase One operations if they meet the Court’s guidelines.

The Missouri Courts’ COVID alerts page remains available at https://www.courts.mo.gov/pandemic/.
