IN ACCORDANCE WITH COURT POLICY FOR COVID-19 WE ASK THAT YOU DO NOT ATTEND THIS OFFICE IN PERSON UNLESS YOU HAVE AN APPOINTMENT.

 

PLEASE READ THIS IMPORTANT INFORMATION

Her Majesty's acting Senior Coroner for East London, Mr Graeme Irvine has revised the court policy on COVID 19 security at the coroner's court.

 

The court notes the relaxation of social distancing measures announced by the government that commence on 19 July 2021, but has also considered carefully the guidance provided by the lord chief justice on how that relaxation will effect courts, of particular note are the following points;

 

  • Face coverings will still be required in our staff, public and communal parts of our buildings.
  • Based on the particular assessed risk to detainees and those working and visiting our custody suites – the areas will continue with all social distancing measures introduced during the pandemic such as touchpoint cleaning, locked down phones, reduced numbers and fluid-resistant surgical masks (FRSMs).
  • To reduce the risk of the virus spreading, the continued use of screens or barriers to separate people from each other who will come into close proximity with others they do not normally meet.

 

Walthamstow Coroners court recognises that its premises pose an elevated risk for the transmission of infection of COVID – 19 due to footfall and the nature of persons attending court, which include; relatives of the recently deceased, members of the frontline emergency services, undertakers, pathologists and doctors.

 

Consequently, the court will continue to require visitors to wear face coverings and observe social distancing measure given that it is a confined and naturally ventilated space.

 

The Court will continue to hold public hearings, but subject to representations from participants, the default position will be that hearings will be heard as “partially remote” hearings in which the Coroner sits in open court and participants join over the video link.

 

We would urge all court users to reflect prior to attending the court in person, in many cases physical visits to the court can be avoided.
