The Judiciary today advised that the Siparia District Court will be closed today until further notice.
The closure has become necessary as a precautionary measure given that a member of staff could have been exposed to a primary contact.
While the staff member has not been confirmed as a Covid-19 case, the usual precautions have called for the current course of action.
The sanitisation of the facility will be conducted and there shall be no in-person hearings or activities. Virtual Court Hearings will continue.
The public will be kept apprised of developments.
