Forsyth County’s Senior Resident Superior Court Judge Todd Burke announced today that the Forsyth County Courthouse will be closed to the public effective immediately through May 4 due to an employee at the courthouse testing positive for COVID-19.
“We are most disheartened to hear that this virus has affected someone that we work with closely,” said Judge Burke. “While we are concerned about continuing to process the cases before the court, we must act immediately to protect the health of other personnel as well as the people that we serve. Acting fast to close the courthouse will help slow the possible spread of the virus.”
While the courthouse is closed, alternate filing sites are as follows:
- 50B domestic violence filings can be made at the Criminal Magistrate’s Office, Forsyth County Detention Center, 201 North Church Street.
- Civil filings can be made at the Civil Magistrate’s Office, Forsyth County Government Center, 201 North Chestnut Street.
