COVID Procedures

The following measures shall be implemented to protect the health and safety of all who utilize the services of Witness Management:

  • No more than ten people will be permitted in Witness Management at any given time. This count includes the two Witness Management employees
  • The two large deposition rooms will be the only rooms utilized, with no more than four occupants at a time six feet apart

  • Depositions must be set at least 15 minutes apart
  • After each deposition, the room will be sanitized by a Witness Management employee
