All regional trial court (RTC) judges and staff stationed at the Manila City Hall have been directed to go on self-quarantine due to possible exposure to COVID-19, Supreme Court (SC) Spokesman Brian Hosaka confirmed on Thursday (June 18).

“I confirm the memo issued by EJ Macaraig (Manila Executive Judge Virgilio Macaraig) dated 18 June 2020 and the lockdown ordered therein,” he told reporters.

In his memorandum, Macaraig said that “all RTC Judges and court personnel stationed in the City Haall of Manila are required to undergo self-quarantine starting today until June 30,2020 considering that two court employees were in contact with close relatives who were found positive with COVID-19.”

“All Judges and court employees affected are advised to avoid contact with the public and to conduct contact tracing of all persons they may have in contact with at the court premises for the last two weeks,” Macaraig said.

“Should any person develop symptoms, please report your condition to respective barangay health worker and report to the undersigned as soon as possible,” he added.

Meanwhile, the judge said affected courts may “conduct hearings through video conferencing away from home and accept pleadings, otions filed electronically during the period of self-quarantine pursuant to circulars issued by the Supreme Court.”

He noted that the Manila City government has been requested to conduct disinfection of the affected courts.
