“The continued surge of positive Covid-19 test results the island is experiencing continues to be of great concern” and “the Courts must reduce services further as part of protective measures.”

This is according to an official circular which stated, “The health, safety and welfare of the Members of the Public, as well as Court Administrative Staff continues to be our paramount concern.

“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 in order 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 is being implemented.”

    Too much to expect those not working will not get paid but get the $500 a week paid to the private sector. Talk about 2 Bermudas, but realty will at some point take over and it won’t be pretty.

    I wonder, is the court staff, court services and senior members of the court have wage cuts due to covid? They clearly cannot perform services as before the pandemic. I also wonder why fines related to covid have been astronomical while everyone has been dealing with financial issues for a 18 months. Losing homes, work, other opportunities. The court should transform its structure to help the people dealing with the pandemic. And for the record I consider judges, prosecution, lawyers, police, and all other court services.
