The High Court in Georgetown and its offices will be closed to the public from today until January 10 amid exposure to the COVID-19, a statement from the Supreme Court of Judicature said on Wednesday. This closure is precautionary given exposure to the virus, and to effect sanitization of the court building and offices.
The usual precautions and protocols are being adopted. The court said that urgent matters will be done by way of remote hearings during this period for the Georgetown High Court. The filing of urgent matters may be effected through the court’s e-filing portal on the Supreme Court’s website (supremecourt.gy).
Persons who have in-person hearings scheduled in the court during this period may contact the Registrar, Deputy Registrar, or their Attorneys-at-Law.
The Georgetown High Court Registry will resume operations with a skeletal staff from next Monday until January 14. Persons are therefore encouraged to continue using the e-filing portal during this time. The Supreme Court noted that strict adherence to the COVID-19 Protocols will be enforced.
