COVID-19 COURT CLOSURES (VENTURA SUPERIOR COURT)
The Ventura Superior Court will be closed Monday, March 16 through Wednesday, March 18.
Persons who have been summoned for jury service during this time should closely follow the instructions on their jury summons. Those reporting to the courthouse whose group number has not been called will be given another date to return.
The court closure days are judicial holidays for purposes of filing deadlines and other time calculations.
Beginning Thursday, March 19, the court will resume limited operations. The majority of courtrooms and all clerk’s offices at all court locations will remain closed. A small number of courtrooms will be open to hear urgent criminal, juvenile, unlawful detainer and temporary restraining order issues only. This will continue through Friday, March 20. At that time, the court will announce whether limited operations will continue based upon guidance provided by public health agencies.
These actions are in response to Governor Gavin Newsom’s declaration of a State of Emergency in the wake of the coronavirus pandemic and the Ventura County Public Health Department’s declaration of a local health emergency.
