Because your absence can delay a trial, it is important that you report each day you are required. If you become ill or have a family emergency (such as a sudden illness, accident or death in the family) on the day you are to report for jury service or during a trial:
Call the Jury Office (301-952-4385) immediately for instructions. Be sure to leave a message with full contact information if no one answers the phone.
If you report that you are ill, you may be told to ask your physician to send a medical excuse to the Jury Office.
