Erie County District Attorney John J. Flynn announced grand jury selection began Monday, as part of the phased reopening of in-person court procedures. The Erie County District Attorney’s Office anticipates criminal cases will begin being presented to the grand jury on Monday, July 20.
It is the policy of the Office of Court Administration that no one can enter the Erie County Court building without a mask. Effective today, all staff and visitors entering the building must undergo a temperature check and verbal screening. If a person has a temperature of 100.0 of higher or fails a verbal screening, they will not be permitted to enter the building.
Each courtroom, including the grand jury, has reduced seating capacity to comply with social distancing requirements.
