Phoenix Municipal Court COVID-19 (Coronavirus) Information

​​​​​​Para traducción en español por favor oprima aquí.

In late March, 2020, as a result of the COVID-19 pandemic together with Governor Ducey's Executive Orders and Arizona Supreme Court Administrative Orders, the Phoenix Municipal Court significantly scaled down its court proceedings, operations, and other activities. The primary purpose of scaling down was to protect the health and safety of the public and Phoenix Municipal Court employees.

With the expiration of the Governor's Executive Order 2020-18, titled “Stay Home, Stay Healthy, Stay Connected," which had urged Arizona residents to stay at home other than for essential activities, with the issuance of Executive Order 2020-36 titled “Stay Healthy, Return Smarter, Return Stronger," and with the issuance of numerous Arizona Supreme Court and Maricopa County Superior Court Administrative Orders detailing how all Arizona courts are to transition and resume court business, the Phoenix Municipal Court is now operating as provided below.

The Court's mission is “Justice Through Excellence" and the Court strives to operate consistently with this mission, while continuing to maintain the health and safety of the public and the Court's employees.

Finally, in conjunction with City, County and State partners, and guided by the direction of public health authorities, the Phoenix Municipal Court will take any additional steps, as appropriate, in response to any changing conditions.​
