State. It spans from the lush forested Cascade Mountains to the upper Yakima River Valley plains and
the Columbia River.
Kittitas County, WA -
Upper District, Lower District, Cle Elum Municipal and Roslyn Municipal Courts are continuing the suspension of Jury Trials through October 31, 2021.
Recent Department of Health statistics reflect that Kittitas County is above the state average in the rate of new cases per 100,000 population and in percentage of positive test results. Therefore, effective immediately, Lower Kittitas County District Court, Upper Kittitas County District Court, Cle Elum Municipal Court and Roslyn Municipal Court will continue the suspension of Jury Trials through October 31, 2021.
The Courts will remain open to the public during regular business hours. As the situation changes, the Courts may make modifications to comply with the rapidly changing environment. Please review www.co.kittitas.wa.us/courts for the most recent information.
While this has been a very difficult decision to make, it is the right decision based on the extraordinary circumstances that we currently face. Changes in behaviors are needed to combat the current spike in COVID-19 cases. The Courts are not exempt from the need to take steps to push the curve down and keep people safe. Temporarily suspending jury trials is the most responsible course of action for our courts to take at this moment. The safety and well-being of our community demands it. The Courts have made significant modifications to jury trial operations in order to keep jurors safe, however holding trials still requires the Court to gather large groups together indoors. At this time, it is simply not worth the risk.
