The Berks County Court of Common Pleas has declared a Judicial Emergency for the following time period: March 17, 2020 to April 14, 2020.

​In an effort to further restrict potential COVID-19 exposure within the courts, the Pennsylvania Supreme Court has ordered that all Pennsylvania courts – including trial and intermediate appellate courts – are closed to the public for non-essential functions, beginning March 19, 2020 at 5:00 PM, through at least April 3, 2020. The statewide court closure also includes magisterial district courts, Philadelphia Municipal Court, and Pittsburgh Municipal Court, Arraignment Division. In addition, the Court has suspended all time calculations and deadlines relevant to court cases or other judicial business through April 3, 2020. The Court has also authorized and encouraged the use of advanced communication technology to conduct emergency court proceedings. In the Courts of Common Pleas, the Order outlines essential functions as:

• Emergency bail review and habeas corpus hearings;

• Gagnon I hearings;

• Bench warrant hearings pursuant to Pennsylvania Rule of Criminal Procedure 150;

• Juvenile delinquency detention hearings;

• Juvenile emergency shelter and detention hearings;

• Temporary protection from abuse hearings;

• Mental health reviews (50 P.S. §302) ;

• Any pleadings or motions relating to public health concerns and involving immediate and irreparable harm; and,

​Additionally, PA Governor Tom Wolf has now ordered that all "non-life sustaining businesses" in Pennsylvania close their physical locations Thursday, March 19, 2020, at 8:00 PM until further notice. Accordingly, DAUTRICH & DAUTRICH LAW OFFICE's physical office is now closed. However, in the view of Administrative Office of Pennsylvania Courts, and DAUTRICH & DAUTRICH LAW OFFICE, restricted access to law offices and facilities by attorneys, staff, and clients is permitted to the degree necessary to allow attorneys to participate in court functions deemed essential by a President Judge per the PA Supreme Court’s order of March 18, 2020, so long as social distancing and other mitigation measures are employed for the protection of lawyers, staff, and clients. Pursuant to the Governor’s order, all other business must be conducted remotely.
