Supreme Court limits in-person attendance to courts to people without a valid Covid vaccination mobility pass
March 3, 2022

On Wednesday, February 2nd, 2022, the Supreme Court Plenary has introduced a set of modifications to the "Protocol for management and prevention of Covid-19 in courts and judicial units", approved on July 6, 2020, by the Supreme Court. The protocol was prepared by a working group formed by the President and judges of the Supreme Court Plenary, representatives of Judicial Branch unions and members of the Judicial Branch Administrative Corporation, in the context of the health emergency due to Covid-19.

Among the modifications, mainly related to internal work distribution, it was provided that judicial employees who work in courts or judicial units, and also people who participate in hearings or use enclosed indoor rooms in such places, must have a valid mobility pass issued by the Ministry of Health in order to be able to enter into them.

However, it is important to note that this limitation does not affect the possibility to participate or appear at such instances by telematic means, in which case it will not be necessary to have a mobility pass.
