I hope all is well with each of you. The coronavirus has impacted communities and our courts in a manner that has left many people feeling uneasy and a bit anxious (at best). However, we still must make every effort to continue to provide access to justice within the context of the recommended health and safety COVID19 guidelines. I am aware that we have issued several amendments and/modifications in the past few months. However, the coronavirus is unprecedented for our courts. We must proceed with caution as we make attempts to preserve the health and well-being of court personnel, attorneys, and the public.
Thank you for your patience and understanding regarding the dilemma that we are faced with. Please see the attached documents below with updates and schedules for the upcoming month(s). Feel free to contact our office if you have any questions or comments.
I appreciate your time and attention. I hope and pray for your safety and well-being.
With Warm Regards,
Teresa H. Vincent
Chief District Court Judge, 18th Judicial District
“Due to a number of courthouse employees who have tested positive for the COVID-19 virus, both the Greensboro and High Point Courthouses will immediately be closed until June 22 to give Guilford County the opportunity to thoroughly sanitize the facilities. The public will not be allowed into the courthouses and employees are instructed to stay home during this time. The county health department has initiated contact tracing and if a courthouse employee is identified by the county to have come into close contact with the infected individuals, he or she will be quarantined and tested. We regret this unfortunate occurrence, but our paramount concern is the safety of the public and all courthouse staff.”
Judge John O. Craig, III
The notification below should help clarify how things will work with Superior Court as we enter our Expansion of Operations phase beginning June 1st, 2020.
Civil Court will be handling motions ONLY for the month of June. The sessions schedule for the fall is being finalized and will shared as soon as possible.
Dear Members of the 18th Judicial District Bar,
I hope all is well with each of you, despite COVID19. Of course, we have scaled back our courts for the past several weeks in response to the coronavirus. However, we are planning to expand access to courts in June of 2020.
You may download the amended schedule for District and Superior courts HERE. Also, District Court COVID19 protocols are on the JUNO website.
Please feel free to contact our Trial Court Coordinator or Administrator if you have any questions or concerns. Thank you all for your patience and cooperation.

Changes to District Court and office schedules are effective Monday, March 23, 2020.
Effective Monday, March 16th, we will not be holding court unless there is an emergency situation for Superior Court Civil matters in Guilford County. Therefore, all matters, trials and motions, currently scheduled to be heard from Monday, March 16th through Monday, April 13th in Superior Court will be postponed. If you believe your matter falls under an emergency circumstance, such as requesting a Civil Temporary Restraining Order, please contact Brittany Robinson (Greensboro) at Brittany R. Robinson or Wendy Stuart (High Point) Wendy J. Stuart for direction and scheduling concerns.
Attention: Attorneys who currently have motions scheduled during this time period will need to reschedule those motions once a definitive reopening of the Courts is confirmed.
Thank you in advance for your attention to this matter and for your cooperation/patience during this time as we work through the next few weeks on rescheduling matters in Guilford County Superior Court.
In light of statements issued by Governor Cooper and Chief Justice Beasley regarding the coronavirus outbreak, we found it prudent to cancel the member meeting scheduled for Thursday. We will evaluate our ability to reschedule this event in the future.
