Alberta Courts says it’s attempting to balance the principle of open courts with public health priorities by enacting further measures to prevent the spread of COVID-19.

As of this coming Monday (Mar. 30), access will be restricted to all of the province’s courthouses until further notice with a few, limited exceptions. A list of those exceptions can be found at the Alberta Courts website.

Those who have been advised to self-isolate by health officials, who are self-isolating due to travel or contact with someone who’s been diagnosed with COVID-19, or those who are experiencing symptoms, will not be allowed to attend Alberta courthouses under any circumstances.

Lawyers, court runners, and litigants are also being urged to use email, fax, dropbox or other alternative methods for filing that have been made available.

I started my radio career in 2015, shortly after graduating from Lethbridge College. I have a very strong passion for local news.

Proudly born in 1994, I grew up most of my life in Sylvan Lake, AB and I’ve lived in the Lethbridge since 2012. I’m a below average golfer on a good day, I take as many hiking trips to Waterton as possible in the summer and I love my two cats, Outlaw and Jynx, and my dog, Maverick, more than most people I know.

I look forward to providing accurate, timely news coverage in southern Alberta for plenty of years to come!
