St. Louis County Courthouses in Duluth, Hibbing and Virginia will re-open to the public beginning Monday, for court customer service only, a news release said Friday.

Court hearings will continue to be held remotely.

St. Louis County Courthouses will be open 8 a.m to 4:30 p.m., Monday through Friday, though people needing court services are still encouraged to do so remotely.

"The courts recognize that some services, including access to public records terminals, can only be done in person," St. Louis County said.

Anyone coming into a St. Louis County Courthouse will be required to wear a face mask. Court security staff from the Sheriff's Office will be stationed at designated entrances to ensure that visitors have conducted a COVID-19 self-screening, and will direct visitors to the location where court services are being offered. Unnecessary visitors, such as those simply accompanying a person coming to a court office, are asked to remain outside.


County offices within the courthouses, along with all other county buildings remain closed, with services continuing to be available by phone, email and mail, as well as select services offered curbside and by appointment.
