Peoria County Facilities - Updated Mitigation Measures
Updated July 30, 2021
Peoria County facilities are open to the public at this time. As of August 2, 2021, face masks are required of everyone entering the Peoria County Courthouse and ancillary facilities.
Guests should socially distance when able. Individual departments may have more stringent guidelines, and patrons of the 10th Judicial Circuit should follow guidelines set forth by the Chief Judge.
Keep in mind that many departments have developed alternative means to an in-person interaction to assist the public with their County business. You may be able to complete your business without having to make a trip.
