Court attendance

Refer to the information below for court attendance information.

Queensland Health advise that people should stay at home if they are feeling unwell or have been overseas in the past 14 days.

If you consider that this advice applies to you, please DO NOT ATTEND a court location.

All new trials in the Supreme and District Courts requiring a jury have been suspended as a precaution. Criminal trials already started before a jury in Supreme and District Courts will continue until conclusion. Other court cases will proceed.

These measures will assist in reducing the potential for transmission of Coronavirus (COVID-19).

Queensland Courts will continue to closely monitor the COVID-19 advice being provided by health authorities and act accordingly.
