TSD: Delaware’s best take on events, community and local life

The Boggs Federal Building was ordered closed Thursday when an attorney was confirmed to have COVID-19

An attorney who recently appeared in the J. Caleb Boggs US Courthouse and Federal Building has tested positive for the coronavirus COVID-19, and the federal court’s chief judge has ordered the building closed. 

On Thursday afternoon, Chief Judge of the United States District Court for the District of Delaware Leonard Stark mandated the facility be closed “until further notice.” 

Stark said after consulting with the Third Circuit Court of Appeals, the United States Marshals, and General Services Administration, “immediate action” was taken to close the building “in order to protect the public, court personnel and other tenants” of the building.

Following CDC guidelines, all potentially affected areas will be thoroughly cleaned and disinfected. 

Although the courthouse is closed, the Court itself remains open for official business.  The Court’s Case Management/Electronic Case Filing (CM/ECF) system is not affected by the closure and parties may continue to file electronically.
