Pima County Superior Court is asking the public to delay some services if they are non-essential, including marriage and divorce proceedings, name changes, passport applications.

The court has gradually been limiting in-person services in order to limit potential exposure of the novel coronavirus, said Krisanne LoGalbo, superior court spokeswoman, in a news release. 

Most non-essential hearings have been postponed as the court continues to maintain critical services for people who need protective orders, have emergencies or are in jail waiting for arraignment or sentencing.
