Coronavirus (COVID-19) Update

The United States Court of Federal Claims (USCFC) is actively monitoring new developments regarding the Coronavirus (COVID-19).

The USCFC is undertaking added measures to protect staff and visitors as concern over COVID-19 spreads throughout the legal community.

  • Sanitation stations have been placed throughout the courthouse—in all public lobbies, private hallways at the elevators, and in the clerk's office.
  • "Step-pulls" have been added on the back of all restroom doors to help alleviate the need to use the pull handles.
  • Judges and special masters may choose to limit in-person proceedings to the extent possible, conducting telephonic and videoconference proceedings where appropriate.

The USCFC urges counsel and pro se plaintiffs to closely monitor the information provided by the Center for Disease Control (CDC) and to review the CDC's simple list of steps to prevent illness, available at The USCFC will continue to monitor information and guidance provided by the CDC and the Administrative Office of the United States Courts.
