The Virginia Supreme Court has issued its Third Order Extending Declaration of Judicial Emergency in Response to COVID-19 Emergency through May 17, 2020. Under this extended order, which affects all Circuit Courts and General District Courts in the Commonwealth of Virginia, the courts have suspended all statute of limitations and case-related deadlines that would otherwise have expired between during the period of judicial emergency, now set as March 16 through May 17.
The declaration also prohibits any gathering of more than 10 people within court buildings. Individual county courts in Virginia are preparing their own procedures to hear motions and hold other proceedings by video and teleconference during the period of judicial emergency.
