Continued Limited Resumption of In-Person Proceedings
Posted on 05/14/2021
Administrator of Courts, Regina Petersen, advises the public and members of the Virgin Islands Bar Association, that the limited resumption of in-person proceedings in the Judicial Branch of the Virgin Islands shall be extended, as modified, through 11:59 pm on Friday, June 30, 2021.

The current order strongly encourages Judicial officers to continue to conduct proceedings remotely to the greatest extent possible. In-person hearings and trials in all matters other than criminal and civil jury trials, may be scheduled subject to approval by the Presiding Judge and/or Administrative Judge of the Superior Court. Such approval will be granted provided that the proceeding can be conducted in accordance with all pertinent health and safety orders, protocols, and administrative directives, including room capacity limits and social distancing.

Additionally, consistent with the current order, the Superior Court Rising Stars Youth Steel Orchestra is authorized to resume summer programming in both judicial districts subject to the approval of a detailed plan for program operations by the Administrator of Courts after consultation with the Virgin Islands Department of Health and other appropriate stakeholders.
