What is the inclement weather policy?
If Harford County Public Schools are closed (due to weather), jurors do not report and your jury service obligation has been satisfied for the calendar year. (Please note that if you did not return your juror qualification form via mail or web, you must contact the Jury Commissioner's Office. Your jury service will be rescheduled.) If Harford County Public Schools have a delayed opening (due to weather), the same applies for jury duty. For example: If schools open 2 hours late, you are to report for jury duty 2 hours late.

If you are already seated as a grand juror or a trial juror, you must report as instructed by the State's Attorney's Office (call them at 410-638-3500) or by the judge presiding over the case.
