Federal courthouse in San Jose closed due to coronavirus

SAN JOSE – The U.S. District courthouse in downtown San Jose is shutting down through at least April 7 after a recent visitor tested positive for COVID-19, authorities said Monday.

The order takes effect Tuesday and applies to all staff members and the public, with no exceptions.

“This period may be extended by further order,” stated the order signed by Judge Phyllis J. Hamilton.

The person visited the federal facility at 280 South First St. on March 11th, 13th and 17th, and was subsequently treated for the novel coronavirus, according to the order.

Coronavirus concerns have also spurred the Northern District of California to close all its other courthouses through at least May 1.
