King County Superior Court Initiates Mask Mandate

The Superior Court of King County, WA released an alert on March 8th, 2022, that masks were required at all times on any person over the age of 3 who enter the King County Courthouse and its related facilities. No timeframe was provided as to the duration of the order.

From The King County Superior Court Clerk’s Office:

“On March 8, 2022, the King County Superior Court entered Emergency Order #36, which goes into effect on Saturday, March 12, 2022, and supersedes KCSC Emergency Order #32.

Emergency Order #36 requires that all persons over the age of 3 must wear a facial covering at all times, regardless of vaccination status, while in courtrooms or areas where court business is conducted with members of the public at the King County Courthouse, Maleng Regional Justice Center, Clark Children and Family Justice Center, and Harborview ITA Court.

Members of the public enter most indoor spaces on a voluntary basis, however, courthouses are different.  Some persons come voluntarily, but many others are required to come. The Court must allow access to everyone who comes to court, whether vaccinated or not. 

The Court continues to consult with professors from the University of Washington, School of Public Health, and makes all final public health decisions with respect to the operations of the Court and courthouses.”
