Stow Municipal Court Order Addressing Coronavirus
After consulting with local government partners and health experts, the Stow Municipal Court will be taking unprecedented steps to adjust court operations to minimize traffic coming in and out of the courthouse. The Court will continue to conduct criminal arraignments and hearings for defendants who are in custody, however every effort will be made to utilize the video conferencing options that are available to limit in-person contact. Further, security staff will be limiting access to the Courthouse to essential parties only (defendants, attorneys, witnesses, victims). All others are asked to stay home or remain in their vehicles.
