Courts will resume tomorrow after taking a day off to allow reorganization of staff and fumigation after a spate of Covid-19 cases within the Judicial Services Commission.

The JSC closed its head office, upper courts, most civil and criminal courts across Zimbabwe including those in major cities like Harare, Bulawayo, Masvingo and Mutare.

In a statement, JSC Head of Corporate Communications Constance Makoni said; “The temporary closure on Wednesday the 8th and Thursday 9th of December 2021 is to allow for disinfection of premises, testing, contact tracing and adherence to all COVID-19 protocols to contain the continued spread of the virus,” said Makoni.

She said all matters set down for Wednesday, 8 December 2021 are automatically rolled over to Friday, 10 December 2021.

“Those set down for Thursday, 9 December 2021 are automatically rolled over to Monday, 13 December 2021,” added Makoni.

 

 

 

The increase in Covid-19 cases recently has made many companies and organisations to take measures in order to mantain and ensure safety of their employees and the public at large.

Banks like FBC have been hard hit, in the past two weeks it has closed its Leopold Takawira branch twice in response to a Covid-19 case.
