Two Pasay courts on 14-day lockdown

Pasay City Executive Judge Divina Gracia Pelino has issued a memorandum Friday (July 10) directing presiding judges and court personnel of the Regional Trial Courts (RTCs) and Metropolitan Trial Courts (MeTCs) to report to work on Monday (July 13) after disinfection at the Hall of Justice and contact tracing efforts had already been completed.

But RTC Branch 112 and MeTC Branch 46 will remain closed for 14 days starting July 9 after two court personnel and a public attorney tested positive for coronavirus disease (COVID-19).

Pelino said the RTC Branch 112 judge and court personnel will be on self-quarantine until July 20.

Meanwhile, MeTC Executive Judge Allan Ariola ordered all personnel of MeTC Branch 46 to go on self-quarantine until July 22.
