Under Governor Kate Brown’s Oregon’s Risk and Protection Framework Lane County falls within the High risk category for the two-week period beginning February 26.
To meet requirements and protect public health, Eugene’s Municipal Court will institute the following changes on February 26:
- Eugene Municipal Court is open for in person court appearances, by appointment only.
- All virtual and in-custody court appearances will continue as scheduled.
- In-custody court appearances are held daily at the Lane County Jail and can be viewed publicly from that location.
- Public viewing for other jail and virtual appearances is available onsite at the courthouse for a limited number of individuals.
- Court appearances scheduled during the extreme risk closure will be set-over to a future court date.
These measures will continue while the State of Oregon has assigned Lane County at the High Risk level for COVID19.
Please make sure the municipal court has your current address to receive notices.
Most court business can be handled online, over the phone, or via mail. The best way to get a message to the court is through email, postal mail, or the drop box outside the courthouse.
Individuals with pending criminal charges are encouraged to call their attorneys for further information on clearing outstanding warrants. If you would like a virtual appearance in place of your in-person appearance, please contact your attorney and request a virtual appearance. If you do not have an attorney, please contact the court and request a virtual appearance. Virtual appearances can happen from most any personal device (phone, tablet, or computer).

The City of Eugene Building & Permit Services is committed to supporting our local construction and development community by performing timely inspection of construction work during the COVID-19 pandemic. In order to continue this essential function in a safe manner and comply with distancing guidelines to limit the spread of the virus, we are implementing a new process for inspections within occupied dwellings.
All inspections within occupied dwellings will initially be done using remote video. Using the Skype application on a mobile device, customers will interact with remote inspectors who will view and verify that the work complies with codes and standards, while minimizing personal contact.
