The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) has recently identified Grand Traverse County as a high transmission area for Covid-19. Consistent with CDC guidelines, anyone entering the public areas or the courtroom on August 5, 2021, will be required to wear a mask, regardless of vaccination status. The court considers the CDC recommendation a Covid-related concern; therefore, video appearances are permissible on August 5, in accordance with Judge Boyd’s Remote Hearing Procedures. Any party who wishes to appear by Zoom should consult Judge Boyd’s "Remote Hearing Procedures" notice on the court's website, https://www.miwb.uscourts.gov/covid-19-notices.
