COVID shutdowns are opening up around Kentucky. With the newest Orders from the Kentucky Supreme Court regarding court proceedings issued on May 18th, 2021, most of the health and safety requirements related to COVID-19 have been lifted. In-person court operations across the state are expanding, and the COVID precautions our firm put in place are now lifted.
The two administrative orders entered in May include a schedule for returning to in-person court proceedings and elimination of the mask mandate for fully vaccinated people entering the courthouse. These orders, Administrative Order 2021-16 and Administrative Order 2021-17 were in response to updated guidance from the Centers for Disease Control.
