JAMAICA COVID-19 WATCH: Keep safe mentally and physically at Court


Thankfully, there are a few courts facilitating hearings during this time of COVID-19. It is important however to keep yourself really safe at The Court. After witnessing aggressive behaviour at the Sutton Street court of the police personnel towards at least one person, here are a few tips to make your hours safe.

1. Build your immunity before even going outside
2. Observe social distancing BY staying at least 3 feet from any and everyone
3. Avoid speaking where you can
4. Listen keenly for your name in your own spot
5. Avoid asking too many questions, and observe more. If you are not guided where to stay until your name is called for you to go in and see the judge, simply stay within hearing of the assigned police, but in your own space so as to ensure you are at least 3 feet from the nearest person to you
6. If you must sit down, please sanitise any seat before sitting
7. Above all, do not let the ignorance and aggresion of others spoil your day. Avoid taking stress or contention from anyone and therefore you will force the frustrated persons to deal with the frustrations elsewhere.
