Announcement by Judiciary
The following is issued on behalf of the Judiciary:
     The Judiciary yesterday (July 15) was notified by the Centre for Health Protection (CHP) that a contractor cleaner at the Labour Tribunal (LT) was tested positive for COVID-19. 

     The LT (including registry) is undergoing cleansing and disinfection and will be closed from today (July 16) until further notice. All hearings of the LT originally scheduled today and thereafter will be adjourned and refixed to a date and time to be notified by the court in due course. All relevant parties to the proceedings affected should keep in view any further notification by the court or public announcements by the Judiciary.

     For enquiries, please call the following hotline during office hours (8.45am-1pm and 2pm-5.30pm, from Monday to Friday):

Labour Tribunal: 3916 6148

     Separately, a court user who visited Tuen Mun Magistrates' Courts (TMM) was also tested positive for COVID-19 yesterday. The relevant building has undergone cleansing and disinfection. 

     Since the court user concerned had a shorter stay and a relatively limited visit inside the building, the TMM will operate as usual today and hearings at TMM today will proceed as scheduled. However, the affected floors and other relevant places will be closed after cleansing and disinfection until further notice.
