Chester County is currently in the Commonwealth of Pennsylvania’s “green phase” as a result of the COVID-19 pandemic. Due to the restrictions being upheld during the green phase, Chester County Government and Courts are operating on limited services with some of our staff continuing to provide services and programs while working from home. If you are not able to complete your business online or find answers to your questions, please  call us at 610-344-6801.

Please note that jury trials are expected to resume on August 3, 2020.

We appreciate your patience and understanding during this time. Please continue to follow all CDC and PA Department of Health guidelines to help control the spread of COVID-19 during the green phase.
