New courts and tribunals guidance comes into force

Dec 20, 2021

New measures for our courts and tribunals come into force today (Monday 20 December) in response to the latest public health advice and the spread of the COVID-19 Omicron variant

These changes, announced on the 15 December, supplement the strong baseline safety measures we already have in place and include: new guidance for court and tribunal users who need to come to our buildings; revised arrangements for business in the Supreme Courts; and guidance for our Sheriff and Justice of the Peace Courts Users.

As has been the case throughout the pandemic, we rely on, and appreciate everyone’s ongoing co-operation to enable us to continue to support justice, despite the challenging circumstances that COVID-19 presents.

We will keep our approach under regular review in line with public health guidance and will provide updates as and when there are any developments or changes required.
