Court Ethics January 2021 Vaccination Survey Results
The Coronavirus has hobbled our nation’s court systems for most of 2020. Here in the first quarter of 2021, we are faced with new hope but also new challenges. No matter how quickly the vaccines are distributed, it appears likely that restrictions will remain in place for most of 2021 and will be lifted slowly.
How will individual courts operate while the pandemic is being brought under control?
How will courts deal with continuing restrictions?
How will courts manage employees who are vaccinated; how will courts manage those who choose not to be vaccinated?
In January of 2021, we invited over 150 court administrators and clerks of court from around the country to take a short survey on their court’s response to the Coronavirus and the upcoming vaccinations. Thirty-four individuals responded, representing 15 states.
Review the survey results.
