Labour Tribunal shut after cleaner catches virus

16 July 2020

By The SUN

It's not clear when the Labour Tribunal will reopen after being shut today due to a cleaner testing positive for Covid-19

A contractor cleaner at the Labour Tribunal has tested positive for coronavirus infection, prompting the Judiciary to adjourn from today, Jul 16, all hearings and close the court indefinitely for cleansing and disinfection.

The Judiciary said it was notified by the Centre for Health Protection about the infected contractor cleaner at the Tribunal on Jul 15.
The Tribunal, including the registry, will remain closed until further notice, the judiciary announced on its website.

However, most disinfections last only for just a day or two, so it is not likely the closure will last until next week.

“All hearings of the LT originally scheduled [for Jul 16] and thereafter will be adjourned and refixed to a date and time to be notified by the court in due course,” the Judiciary said.

“All relevant parties to the proceedings affected should keep in view any further notification by the court or public announcements by the Judiciary.”

The announcement advised the public to call the Labour Tribunal hotline 3916 6148 during office hours from 8.45am to 1pm and 2pm to 5.30pm, Monday to Friday.

The Tribunal, along with most courts, were closed after Chinese New Year in late January in the wake of the coronavirus outbreak, and reopened gradually only in late March.
