NOTICE TO THE PROFESSION AND THE GENERAL PUBLIC
PROVINCIAL COURT OPERATIONS
REVISED COVID-19 OPERATIONAL PLAN
ISSUED: MAY 13, 2022
Treasury Board Secretariat announced effective Saturday, May 14, 2022, public service employees are no longer required to wear masks in core government departments. While not required, wearing a face mask that covers the nose and mouth remains recommended as this is an effective way to reduce the risk of COVID-19 transmission.
To continue helping to protect clients, the public, stakeholders, judges and staff, all individuals attending Court must continue to wear a face covering over the mouth and nose, at all times. This requirement does not apply to children under the age of five or to individuals who are unable to wear a face covering due to a medical condition. If you attend Court without a mask, a disposable mask will be provided along with instruction on how to properly and safely use the mask.
When seated inside the courtroom, the presiding judge may, in his or her discretion, permit persons to remove their masks.
All other protocols will remain in effect.
