Des Plaines, IL asked in Traffic Tickets for Illinois

Q: I have traffic court date on 07/23/2020, this is the third time the date has moved due to covid 19, I'll be out of state

I have a dupage county traffic court date which is moved to 07/23/2020. I have to move out of state this month. I was hoping to attend in person for requesting second supervision as I got the second ticket while I was on 1st court supervision. I got the second ticket for using cell phone while driving. What are my options? Do I have to be present in person? I have the new job offer letter and new lease info that I signed for proof of my move. Please advise!
