As states begin to relax social distancing restrictions and restart their economies, the post-COVID-19 landscape has started to take shape. That landscape still looks rocky at the moment. Most states are taking phased approaches to the reopening of their economies. Previously announced reopening dates continue to be pushed back. This leaves access to public services in a wait-and-see mode with state officials essentially saying “don’t call us, we’ll call you.” Though it is expected that many states will reopen more fully this summer, others are waiting to see how things go with the return to school in September.
On the positive side of things, the CHR team has been able to maintain access to some jurisdictions. County House Research continues to work with court officials, our researchers on the ground, and other resources to access local court records. We are also working with the PBSA to restore full access to public records. There are some hopeful signs that this lobbying will soon bear fruit, however, the situation remains uncertain.
