RIVERSIDE (CNS) – Four Riverside County courthouses that were shuttered nearly three months ago due to the coronavirus pandemic will remain closed to the public until the end of the month because of ongoing concerns about COVID-19, Superior Court officials announced on Thursday.
The Corona, Hemet and Temecula courthouses,  along with Moreno Valley Traffic & Small Claims Court, were slated to reopen on Monday. Presiding Judge John Vineyard decided that it was too soon, even though in the last two weeks, the Superior Court has returned four courts to operation, with public health safeguards in place.
According to the Superior Court Executive Office, the four closed courthouses are now scheduled to reopen to the public on June 29. There was no specific reason given for the postponement, other than the need to ensure that the courts comply with newly established health protocols before they go back into operation.
