As of next Monday, the state court system has the OK to reopen, but with safety precautions and some continued use of virtual sessions. The Supreme Judicial Court spelled out Tuesday how the system will operate as it resumes wider public access in the coronavirus pandemic.

Anyone coming to a court will be screened for evidence of a high temperature with a no-contact thermometer. Naturally, face coverings and social distancing will be required.

People arriving will be asked a series of questions, including whether they have tested positive for COVID-19 in the past 14 days, have symptoms or been advised to self-quarantine. Your temperature must be 100 degrees or lower. If you register above that, you can have it taken again in 10 minutes.
