When the Circuit Breaker ends on 1 June 2020, the State Courts will resume operations gradually from 2 June 2020.
Hearings will continue to be conducted remotely
To safeguard public health and minimise the risk of community transmission of COVID-19, hearings will continue to be conducted using remote communications technology, where possible and appropriate. The State Courts'
Registrar's Circular No. 5 of 2020, which specifies the types of hearings in the State Courts which may be heard using video or telephone conferencing, will continue to apply after 1 June 2020, until further notice. In addition, the use of video or telephone conferencing may, on a case-by-case basis, be incrementally expanded to hearings beyond that listed in the Schedule to Registrar's Circular No. 5 of 2020. This could include, for example, portions of criminal trials that can suitably be carried out with parties or witnesses appearing remotely.
