Cabarrus Courthouse closed due to COVID-19 cases

Sept. 28. The Cabarrus County Courthouse is closed today, Sept. 28, to allow for rescheduling of cases caused by a reduction in courthouse staffing after two people tested positive for COVID-19. Courthouse officials said more than a dozen employees may need to quarantine due to potential exposure.

The staffing shortage will likely affect the District Court’s calendar through Oct. 9. To minimize disruptions, officials will shift District Court hearings to a virtual platform when possible.

Superior Court cases scheduled after Sept. 28 are not affected.

Anyone with a District Court or Superior Court case scheduled for Sept. 28 should contact their lawyer or the Clerk of Court’s Office on or after Oct. 1 to confirm the rescheduled court date at 704-262-5500. Officials have a new schedule posted at .

The Magistrate’s Office, which is located in the Sheriff’s Administration Building, will remain open Monday.

No other Court or Magistrate’s Office employees are exhibiting symptoms. The Cabarrus Health Alliance (CHA), Cabarrus County’s public health authority, is notifying those who have been identified as a close contact through contact tracing and informing them of precautionary steps to follow, including a 14-day self-isolation.

Officials from Cabarrus County Government, which manages the Sheriff’s Administration and Courthouse facilities, have performed a deep cleaning of the Magistrate’s Office and Courthouse following government sanitation guidelines.

Out of an abundance of caution, officials with Cabarrus County Courts are working to notify all Cabarrus County court personnel, attorneys, law enforcement and members of the public who may have visited the Cabarrus County Courthouse in the last week.

Anyone who believes they are experiencing symptoms of COVID-19 should contact their primary care provider. If you do not have a primary care provider, call the CHA Health Information Line at 704-920-1213.
