The United States District Court for the District of Delaware recently issued a Revised Standing Order Concerning the Use of Face Mask and Coverings in Public Areas of the District and Bankruptcy Court. Per the Revised Standing Order, court staff are required to wear a face mask when interacting with the public. Likewise, visitors of the courthouse, including attorneys, litigants, vendors, etc. must wear a mask when interacting with court staff and in common or public areas of the court facilities. Judges will determine if or when face masks may be removed in a courtroom.
