ALL PERSONS ENTERING THE ROMAE T. POWELL JUVENILE JUSTICE CENTER ARE REQUIRED TO WEAR A FACE MASK, OR FACIAL COVERING, OVER THEIR NOSE AND MOUTH AT ALL TIMES.

Based on the CDC guidelines ALL employees and visitors to the Romae T. Powell Juvenile Justice Center are required to wear a well-fitting Face Mask or facial covering, over the nose and mouth at all times, while inside of the building. Appropriate masks are N95 masks, KN95 masks, or a disposable surgical mask covered by a cloth mask.

The Fulton County Sheriff’s Office will provide a disposable mask to entrants who do not have a face mask or facial covering.

TEMPERATURE SCREENING
In accordance with the Georgia Court Reopening Guide, the Guidelines for Expanded In-Person Proceedings require that everyone entering our court facilities wear a mask or face covering and will be subject to temperature screening using a no-touch thermometer.

Any person who has a confirmed body temperature over 100.0 will be denied entry to the Juvenile Court building and instructed to contact the judge’s chambers or office that they were required to report to so that the hearing or appointment can be rescheduled.

SOCIAL DISTANCING
Upon entering a courtroom, a minimum distance of six-feet must be maintained between individuals who do not reside together to facilitate adequate social distancing. As the courtroom social distancing capacity is limited to 8 to 12 individuals (depending on the size and layout of the courtroom), priority will be given to attorneys, parties, and GAL/CASA subpoenaed witnesses may be allowed to remain outside the courtroom until needed.
