Judicial officials in Halifax County plan to resume operations for district court effective Tuesday, January 19.
The North Carolina Judicial Branch made the announcement in a press release.
There has been no word from the state on when courts in Bertie, Hertford, and Northampton counties plan to resume operations.
The state had announced in December the courts in Judicial 6 would close for 30 days in light of the novel coronavirus pandemic.
To help prevent the spread of COVID-19 and protect the public and staff, anyone visiting the courthouse is reminded that face coverings are required and social distancing must be observed, the state said.
