Note for members of the media when attending the Supreme Court

We encourage visitors to take a free, rapid lateral flow COVID-19 test before they attend a hearing or hand down. These are readily available in local areas or can be ordered online.

Please note the following guidance remains in place:

  • Anyone displaying symptoms of COVID–19 should not attend the UKSC
  • The number of attendees in the courtroom may be limited; however, dedicated seating will be allocated to the media wherever possible, subject to space.
  • Members of the media must pre–announce by Tuesday 4pm if they wish to attend a lock-in on a Wednesday from 8.30am. Without pre–announcement, entry cannot be guaranteed. For hearings, it is recommended that members of the media pre-announce to ensure seating, but is not essential.
  • The media kitchen will be available for use. Maximum numbers will apply.
  • When moving through the building, visitors are asked to remain respectful of others not in their group and maintain a social distance where possible.
  • Guidance on appropriate COVID–secure measures will be displayed in the courtroom and the meeting rooms. All attendees are asked to follow this guidance at all times. Please raise any concerns or breaches observed with the usher or a member of security staff as soon as possible.
  • Visitors are encouraged to bring as little paperwork with them as possible.
  • The Café will also be open on the lower ground floor from 9am.
  • Face coverings must be worn in all public areas of the building unless exempt. We ask those not actively participating in the court room to wear a face covering unless exempt.
