We continue to work closely with county and state government to communicate regarding COVID-19 and local court operations. Consistent with public health recommendations, we have additional staff cleaning more often in public areas such as elevators, restrooms, courtrooms, and jury assembly/deliberation rooms. The solution used in the cleaning process is approved by the Center for Disease Control as an anti-viral product to combat COVID-19. Our employees have been reminded to do things like wash their hands regularly, as well as other precautions.

Seguimos colaborando muy de cerca con el gobierno del estado de Arizona y del condado de Maricopa para mantenernos informados  en relación al COVID-19  (la enfermedad del coronavirus) y las operaciones del tribunal local. De acuerdo con las recomendaciones del Departamento de Salud Pública del condado de Maricopa, contamos con personal adicional para limpiar con más frecuencia  las áreas públicas, tales como: ascensores, baños públicos, salas de audiencia, salas de asamblea del jurado/salas de deliberación. La solución limpiadora que se emplea para el proceso de limpieza ha sido aprobada por Los Centros para el Control y la Prevención de Enfermedades (CDC, por sus siglas en inglés) como un producto antiviral para combatir el COVID-19. Se les ha recordado a nuestros empleados hacer cosas como lavarse las manos regularmente, así como otras precauciones.
