The DRC takes the welfare of our clients, volunteers, and staff seriously. As a result of information released on Friday, 03/13/2020 we have made the decision to be accessible by phone only. We continue to monitor the evolving nature and safety concerns resulting from the COVID-19 virus closely, and we are seeking to respond in the most responsible way possible.

We will continue to communicate with you on changes in our policies and will strive to be as flexible as possible to ensure that the health and safety needs of all our clients, volunteers and staff are addressed while continuing to provide a high quality of service.

COVID-19 MESSAGE, 03/12/2020

The DRC takes the welfare of our clients, volunteers, and staff seriously. We are monitoring the evolving nature and safety concerns of the COVID-19 virus closely, and we are seeking to respond in the most responsible way as new information becomes available.

We have begun some commonsense protocols, including, but not limited to, posting reminders of effective handwashing techniques, providing hand sanitizer in our front office, at our mediation tables, at the small claims court locations, and by wiping down the high traffic surfaces throughout our office.

We are developing contingency plans for our core operations. These would include reduced on-site hours, remote connectivity for staff, increased reliance on phone mediations, and postponement of selected activities or services. We will communicate with our clients regarding changes in our policies and will strive to be as flexible as possible to ensure that the health and safety needs of all our clients, volunteers and staff are addressed.

Please let us know if you have any questions or concerns about the actions we are taking.

Protect Your Health


Everyone should take simple steps to prevent the spread of respiratory illnesses, including COVID-19:
  • Wash hands often with soap and water.
  • Cover coughs and sneezes with an elbow or tissue.
  • Avoid close contact with people who are sick.
  • Clean and disinfect frequently used objects and surfaces.
  • Stay home when sick and avoid close contact with others.

Recommendations For People At Higher Risk


Some people are at higher risk for serious illness, including:
  • People with underlying health conditions
  • Pregnant women
  • Older adults
We recommend people who are at higher risk for serious illness avoid crowds as much as possible to reduce close contact with people who are sick.
