Cumberland County Adult Probation COVID-19 Updates

The Adult Probation Department is committed to helping protect and serve our community . . . 

As our department and Cumberland County take appropriate precautions to protect the health and well-being of our employees and members of our communities, we want to inform the public of the following temporary operational changes.

On Tuesday, March 17, 2020, the Cumberland County Board of Commissioners signed a Declaration of Disaster Emergency due to the coronavirus (COVID-19).  The commissioners made this decision for the health and safety of our county employees and residents.

In an effort to mitigate the spread of COVID-19, Governor Tom Wolf has issued a Stay at Home Order placing restrictions on travel for all individuals in Cumberland County with the exception of certain essential activities and work to provide life-sustaining business and government services.  These new restrictions take effect Monday, March 30, 2020, at 8 p.m. and last until April 30.

Stay at Home Order Guidance

Residents will not be permitted in the Cumberland County Courthouse, county-owned buildings and facilities.  The only exception is any court proceedings and court-related matters as specifically indicated by order of the President Judge of Cumberland County that shall be conducted.  The Court of Common Pleas of the 9th Judicial District, Cumberland County, and all Magisterial District Judges Offices are closed to the public for 14 days until April 3 at 8 a.m.  A re-evaluation of this measure will be made closer to April 3.

Current visitation restrictions remain in place at the Cumberland County Prison and county-owned Claremont Nursing and Rehabilitation Center.

All DUI classes scheduled for March and April have been cancelled.  The schedule for May will be reviewed, and participants will be notified when classes have been rescheduled and available makeup dates.

If residents have urgent matters with county government offices, they can call the individual office or visit the county website to find online solutions.
