Queensland Courts ARE open and hearing cases but with a number of operational changes.
Queensland Health advise that people should stay at home if they are feeling unwell or have been overseas in the past 14 days.
If you consider that this advice applies to you, please DO NOT ATTEND a court location.
For Magistrates Court matters, defendants are encouraged to make use of electronic pleas of guilty and adjournments, where available. Guidelines for court arrangements in various Magistrates Courts are now available. If you are a party to proceedings, you should contact your legal representative or the court via telephone or email. See Courthouse contacts contained in the linked web page below.
These measures will assist in reducing the potential for transmission of Coronavirus (COVID-19).
Queensland Courts will continue to closely monitor the COVID-19 advice being provided by health authorities and act accordingly.
