The Judiciary of Guam closed their doors at noon due to COVID-19 on island.

Chief Justice Phillip Carbullido said the closure is in line with the rest of the Government of Guam and calls for non-essential employees to stay home. However, Carbullido states that Guam law requires the court to remain open for certain functions.

Civil and Criminal case trials schedule between now and April 17 will continue as planned. As will magistrate proceedings, preliminary hearings for detained juveniles, civil protection order, temporary restraining orders, and search warrants.
