Notice Regarding COVID-19 from Michael Caruso, Federal Public Defender

With the increasing news and concern about the COVID-19 Coronavirus, we want to assure you that your health and safety is our top priority. We are closely monitoring the situation, and no matter what happens, we will keep providing you the highest quality representation.

That said, to protect the health and safety of our staff, we have decided to reduce the number of individuals physically present in each office. Instead, much of our staff will be working from home and will only be going to the courts and jails if necessary. Although much of our staff will not be physically present in the office, you will still be able to communicate with your attorney and other staff members by phone, letter, and email. If you need anything, do what you normally do, call the office.

Meanwhile, we will continue to monitor the news and reports from the Center for Disease Control (CDC), as well as local, state, and federal governments. We hope to have more information for you in the coming days. We know being in custody makes it difficult to take the preventive measures you would like to take, but please do your best to remain safe and healthy, including washing your hands and covering your mouth when you cough or sneeze. These are unprecedented times. Together we will get through them.
