The Guilford County Courthouse in High Point will be closed for the rest of the week. 

Some court cases will be moved to Greensboro, others may be handled virtually. That's after a pressurized water line broke, causing damage to all floors on the east side of the High Point Courthouse.

County officials say it could take a week to make repairs. The closure will lead to some changes.

The High Point magistrate's office will be working out of the police department on Westchester Drive. 

High Point criminal superior court sessions planned for this week have been canceled and will be rescheduled.

The Guilford County Family Justice Center has a separate entrance and was not affected by the water damage. It remains open and services have not been disrupted.

The High Point courthouse on Greene Drive opened in 1990.
