A reminder of COVID-19 guidance

Jan 11, 2022

Our commitment remains that anyone who needs to visit or work in our premises will be able to do so safely. With a New Year of courts and tribunals business under way we would like to remind everyone who needs to use our buildings to follow the measures we have in place to keep everyone safe.

This guidance supplements the strong baseline safety measures across our estate:
  • We encourage everyone to respect personal space and maintain at least 2m physical distancing in all our buildings
  • We continue to encourage good hand hygiene, maintain enhanced surface cleaning – especially of high touch-point areas – and maintain good ventilation in line with relevant guidance
  • The legal requirement for face coverings to be worn in our buildings remains in place 
  • Our “Safe2Go” contact system continues to require all those accessing our buildings to check-in and check-out using the system
  • General public access to our buildings will continue to be restricted and public counters remain closed
  • We continue to support home working arrangements wherever possible.


Please take a Lateral Flow Test before coming to our buildings

In addition, we would like to remind everyone working in or visiting our buildings to test regularly using lateral flow devices (LFDs). These tests provide an additional tool to establish if a person has COVID-19 but is not displaying any symptoms. We strongly encourage everyone entering our buildings to take a lateral flow test every time before doing so.  This will help protect everyone visiting or working in our buildings.

Lateral flow tests are free and can be sent to your homecollected from your nearest test site or picked up from your nearest participating pharmacy. Please help us to support the public health response and reduce the risk of transmission of the virus on the premises by taking lateral flow tests.


Thank you for your support

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. Please continue to keep your guard up and follow the Government’s baseline safety measures, set out below.

To help protect yourself and others:

As has been the case throughout the pandemic, 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.
