Temperature Checks, Health Queries Are Now Standard Procedure at Courthouses

From The Maui News

WAILUKU — Temperature checks and basic health screenings began Monday at courthouses throughout the state, including Hoapili Hale in Wailuku. 

Members of the Hawaii National Guard in uniform, but unarmed, are conducting contactless temperature checks and basic health screenings for everyone entering the courthouses. Those who enter are asked health- and coronavirus-related questions, such as if they have traveled in the last week or have had contact with anyone with COVID-19.

“We are extremely grateful to Maj. Gen. Kenneth Hara, who is incident commander of the COVID-19 pandemic, and the Hawaii Army National Guard for responding to our request for assistance,” said Chief Justice Mark E. Recktenwald. “This added capability augments our existing protective measures, such as required face coverings, social distancing and frequent cleaning.”

Members of the Air and Army Guard will be stationed outside courthouse entrances. Anyone who has a temperature of 100.4 degrees or higher or isn’t able to clear health screening questions will not be permitted to enter. Court users who are denied entry will be asked to call the designated offices to discuss their options, according to a news release from the state Judiciary.

People are asked to allow extra time to get through the screening process. 

“These courthouses serve significant numbers of people, and for many, their presence is required by law,” the chief justice said. “Our commitment to access to justice includes helping people feel safe to walk through our doors, especially during this pandemic.”

Jury trials are scheduled to resume in September, he said.
