COVID-19 Update

Gwinnett County Recorder's Court has reopened as of June 15, 2020.  Every effort has been made to reduce the number of people that will be in the building at the same time.  The following safety measures have been put in place to ensure that we provide a safe environment in keeping with the CDC guidelines.

  • Dedicated entry and exit doorways, queue lines and floor markings to encourage 6-foot distancing.

  • All areas will be sanitized after each court session.

  • Hand sanitizing stations have been placed in several places around the courthouse.

  • Writing pens are sanitized after each use.

  • Glass barriers have been installed at the payment windows.

  • Face masks are encouraged to be used while inside the courthouse.

  • Traditionally we have had two arraignment calendars each day, but we have expanded that to four arraignment calendars to reduce number of people in the courthouse.

If you or a family member have recently been exposed to COVID-19 or you are experiencing any of the COVID-19 symptoms, please do not enter the courthouse. We encourage you to handle your case by phone (1-877-794-0988), by emailing us at recorderscourtinfo@gwinnettcounty.com or by visiting our website at www.gwinnettrc.com.
