Circuit Court Moves Back To Phase One

FROM STAFF REPORTS

Although COVID-19 numbers continuing to remain steady in Ste. Genevieve County, the Ste. Genevieve County Court in the 24th Circuit has been ordered to take two steps back.

Effective March 3, Ste. Genevieve County Court in the 24th Circuit has moved to Phase One of the Supreme Court of Missouri’s Operational Directives. According to Circuit Clerk Julie Bova, it had been at Phase Three since Jan. 25.

Phase One limits the occupancy rate in courtrooms or common areas.

All visitors to the Ste. Genevieve Courthouse are required to wear a mask.

Anyone scheduled for court within the next two weeks should contact their attorney before showing up.

Those without an attorney can check their case by going to courts.mo.gov – click on casenet and search using their name or case number.

They can look under scheduling hearing and trials tab to see the date of the next court appearance.

In May 2020 the 24th Circuit initially moved to Phase One.

While on casenet, one can also click on track this case (under case the header tab) to enter email or cell phone information to receive alerts when something is filed on the case.

Bova said her staff is always available to help or answer questions at 573-883-2705, extension 1.
