The Honorable Clark Andrew Ritchie, presiding judge of the Page County Circuit Court, shut down the court on Tuesday, Nov. 17 due to a COVID-19 case in the building.

Grayson Markowitz, clerk of the county’s circuit court, confirmed the closure.

“Page County Circuit Court was closed to the public as of November 17th by Judge Richie as best practices by the Chief Judge of the Supreme Court due to a COVID issue,” Markowitz responded to a PVN request for information about last week’s incident. “Our office has had every person tested and have limited operations. We are following all CDC guidelines. Most of the staff is working remotely.”

Markowitz added that the Page County Circuit Court and the clerk’s office will be “closed to the public” until Monday, Nov. 30 “due to a COVID scenario.”

“We are still recording in land records and have personnel handling critical court activities,” Markowitz stated in his reply. 

Efforts to reach Commonwealth Attorney Ken L. Alger II for comment were unsuccessful.
