Suspension of hearings
On 9 December, an individual who had been on-site tested positive for COVID-19. Accordingly, a number of other individuals were told to isolate and, due to the reduction in staff numbers, and in the interest of safety, hearings were suspended before they were due to finish on 17 December for the Christmas period.
It remains, at present, the Inquiry’s plan to resume hearings on 11 January 2021 and continue with the current limited attendance model that has been in place since July 2020. The Inquiry will however continue to take stock of the rapidly evolving COVID-19 situation at the turn of the year.
