But, those who are unvaccinated are partially vaccinated still need masks

A South Coast court system is dropping its mask requirement for those who are fully vaccinated against COBID-19. Ventura Superior Court is dropping the requirement, but people entering court facilities will be asked if they have been vaccinated.

People who have not been fully vaccinated will still have to wear masks. People who haven’t received shots, and refuse to wear masks won’t be admitted to courthouse facilities.

Those with medical issues which don’t allow them to wear masks can apply for an exemption.

Regardless of vaccination status, social distancing is still being enforced in courtrooms and jury assembly rooms. Access to clerk’s offices continues to be limited, and requires appointments.
