BAKERSFIELD, Calif. (KGET) — Jurors have been summoned to the Kern County Superior Court next week as trials get back underway after disruptions due to COVID-19.
The court said it is taking safety precautions as jurors return to the courthouse, such as offering online registration, reducing the number of jurors called at a time and staggering reporting times, in addition to regular disinfection procedures.
The court said jurors will also be required to watch a recorded orientation.
KCSC announced earlier this week that no one will be allowed into the court without a face covering, and that includes jurors.
