The Judicial Service Commission (JSC) has closed seven courthouses after recording Covid-19 positive cases.

Consultations are underway with the Ministry of Health and Child Care on the way forward.

The courts that have been affected include Chinhoyi Magistrates’ Court; Karoi Magistrates’ Court; Kariba Magistrates’ Court; Bindura Magistrates’ Court; Mt Darwin Magistrates’ Court; Mutare Magistrates’ Court; and Mutare High Court.

“Meanwhile, we are closing these seven (7) courthouses for purposes of fumigation, testing of staff and contact tracing of all the people who may have come into contact with the cases,” JSC said in a statement on Wednesday.

“Litigants and legal practitioners who may want to file any papers at these courts may get in touch with the registrar, resident magistrate, additional sheriff or assistant master on duty.” ■
