DUE TO COVID-19, PLEASE NOTE THE FOLLOWING
(updated February 18, 2022)

THE HUNT VALLEY, ROCKVILLE, AND SALISBURY BUILDINGS OF THE OFFICE OF ADMINISTRATIVE HEARINGS (OAH) ARE OPEN.

While not required, individuals who wish to use face coverings at OAH Offices are permitted to do so. Preferred face coverings do not include bandanas, gaiters, or masks with exhalation valves.

Unvaccinated individuals are strongly encouraged to wear face masks.

PLEASE CHECK YOUR HEARING NOTICE CAREFULLY.

Beginning July 1, 2021, OAH will be conducting more
hearings in person at the Hunt Valley, Salisbury and Rockville Buildings.
Your hearing notice will indicate the location of the hearing.

If the hearing notice states that the hearing will be held at the OAH Hunt Valley building (11101 Gilroy Road), the Rockville building (40 West Gude Drive), or the Salisbury building (201 Baptist Street), the hearing will be held in person unless an Administrative Law Judge orders otherwise. OAH is using only the largest hearing rooms for in-person hearings. In addition, OAH has added plexiglass partitions and dividers to many hearing rooms for the protection of hearing participants. You may request that a case scheduled for an in-person hearing be converted to a remote hearing by following the instructions on this website.

For in-person hearings, all participants will be required to comply with the guidelines set forth above for entering the Hunt Valley and Rockville buildings.

If your case has been scheduled for a remote hearing,
instructions for participating in a remote proceeding will be sent to you. Please review your notice of hearing/mediation carefully for instructions on participating in a remote proceeding.
