Consistent with public health officials’ guidance, the Immigration Court has implemented practices to help to protect all people working in and visiting EOIR spaces. Face coverings may be required in immigration court spaces, including the courtroom. Social distancing practices are in place. Maintaining a distance of six feet from those with whom you do not live is required. Waiting times to enter the building, an elevator, and EOIR space may be significantly longer than usual or expected.
