Courts reduce services because of Covid-19
The courts have restricted their operations further because of Covid-19 health concerns, it was revealed tonight.
A government spokeswoman said that Magistrates’ Court and the Supreme Court would continue to sit, but with “reduced services and limited access”.
She said: “The continued surge of positive Covid-19 test results the island is experiencing continues to be of great concern to the community.
“As such, the courts must reduce services further as part of protective measures which are necessary to implement to assist in the efforts to reduce the community spread of Covid-19.
“It should be noted that both the Magistrates’ Court and the Supreme Court of Bermuda are in operation, but reduced services and limited access are being implemented.”
The spokeswoman added: “The health, safety and welfare of the members of the public, as well as court administrative staff, continues to be our paramount concern.”
