The province will see courts close on Monday to the general public, in an effort to protect those in the justice system from COVID-19.

Access to Alberta courthouses will be restricted until further notice, the Court of Queen’s Bench said in a news release.

In order to reduce in-person contact, email, dropboxes, and faxes will be used by lawyers, court runners, and litigators who need to get documents through.

Some people will still be able to access courts, and those exceptions are lawyers, witnesses, interpreters, support workers and staff, parties involved in litigation or appeals, media, those paying a fine or bail, people filing documents, and people in attendance already approved to be by a judge.
