    A notice giving a deadline for the submission of vaccination information by T&T Judiciary workers was not authorized by the organization.

    This is according to a media release posted on its social media accounts in response to a newspaper article.

    The Express reported that workers were given until the end of the workday to send in proof that they have been vaccinated against COVID-19.

    This comes ahead of the government policy requiring public servants to be vaccinated or face furlough.

    The Judiciary says the notice was issued to staff of the Criminal Division by the Criminal Division management, but was not authorized.

    It also clarifies that, it has been and continues to seek information on staff vaccination status but, like any other organization, it awaits any definitive legal position on the issue of vaccination.
