COVID-19 and the New Hampshire Courts
All NHJB courts are open during regular business hours. However, due to the COVID-19 pandemic, public access to courthouses and/or clerk’s offices has been restricted. With narrow exceptions, only individuals who are filing for emergency relief or who are scheduled for in-person court proceedings may be admitted.
The Courts are holding in-person hearings only in essential case types. All others have been suspended per emergency order. Anyone seeking admission to a courthouse will be screened for COVID-19 and must observe social distancing to the extent reasonably possible. Registered members of the media should reference the current media protocol and may continue to enter courthouses to observe court proceedings that are not otherwise confidential. The Courts remain committed to maintaining the judicial process while protecting staff and the public. Please continue to check the NHJB COVID-19 Response page for updates on current operations and the latest orders governing Court proceedings in each Court.
