NEW: Alexandria Courthouse reopening to public on May 3

After more than a year since closing its doors to the general public, the Alexandria Courthouse is reopening on Monday, May. 3.

That means that anyone will be able to walk into the courthouse (520 King Street in Old Town) without an appointment, including the Clerk of Court’s office, which will be open for normal business 8 a.m. and 4 p.m. during the week, except for holidays.

It also means that the Clerk’s office will no longer do business by email.

“Concurrently with reopening, the Clerk’s office will no longer accept pleadings, copy requests, concealed carry applications, notary oath applications, or filings of any kind, by email to [email protected],” the Clerk’s office said on its website.

The courthouse was deep-cleaned last fall after an employee tested positive for COVID-19, and there was a small outbreak earlier this year. Thousands of cases had to be put on the back burner during the pandemic.

The U.S. District Court in the city’s Carlyle neighborhood began reopening in March.
