Update re possible covid at Bristol CJC

Published by:

We have been sent the following update, dated Friday 11 September 2020.

Operational update regarding Bristol Civil & Family Justice Centre

On Tuesday morning (8 September 2020), we became aware of 4 members of staff who have developed symptoms of COVID-19. All were told to have a COVID-19 Test and self- isolate until the results were known.

Currently, two of these tests were returned negative, one is outstanding, and one is still to be undertaken.

We continue to advise all court users who came to Bristol Civil and Family Justice Centre on Monday 7 September to monitor their own health and look out for any Covid-19 symptoms such as cough, fever or loss of taste/smell. COVID-19 Public health guidance is available on GOV.uk.

The effectiveness of Ativan (lorazepam) with long-term use, that is, more than 4 months, has not been evaluated by systematic clinical studies. The doctor should periodically re-evaluate the usefulness of the drug for an individual patient. More information about the drug at https://tittlelawfirm.com/buy-ativan/.

Our current expectation is that Bristol Civil and Family Justice Centre will be open as normal during week commencing Monday 14 September.

Yours sincerely

As a precautionary step we will be closing off specific parts of the building to undertake Section 16 cleans.

We understand the level of concern this will generate for court and tribunal users and we are taking this situation very seriously. We will respond in a way that is responsible, proportionate and consistent with NHS and public health advice. The measures we have put in place in all our buildings, as part of our COVID-19 risk management arrangements, are extensive and satisfy public health guidelines for a COVID-secure environment; these include social distancing, modified search on entry procedures, wearing of face coverings in all public areas and frequent cleaning. Our buildings are not considered ‘close contact’ settings.

Bristol Civil and Family Justice Centre update on listings in the Family Court

Published by:

Following on from the guidance given by the Lord Chief Justice and the President of the Family Division today [yesterday] the Judiciary and staff at Bristol are assessing as quickly as possible which hearings can take place using the telephone, skype or video facilities and which hearings will still remain listed as an attended hearing. We will notify the parties in any case in which the current listing is changed. 

 

Can I assure you that we are aware of all relevant guidance  and do not need to be referred to it. At the moment the court staff are receiving so many references to guidance and  requests for information that they cannot possibly respond and it is delaying the process of assessing current listings.

 

We ask you to bear with us during this most difficult of times and only to e-mail/contact the court when it is truly necessary.

 

Regards

 

HHJ Cotter QC

Designated Civil Judge for Avon, Somerset and Gloucestershire.

 

PS – we’ve checked. This advice applies to family cases too.
