The Courts have been closely monitoring the Government’s announcements and advice concerning COVID-19 and its management. Recommendations regarding the Courts’ response to COVID-19 are underpinned by the need to ensure the health and safety of all involved in running and attending Court, as well as maintaining access to justice and ensuring the effectiveness of the Courts’ operations.
