Chief Coroner's Guidance on COVID-19

This document is intended to be the main piece of Guidance for all coroners from the Chief Coroner about the approach to COVID-19

The Guidance applies to reports of death and coroner investigations in England and Wales only (the extent of the Chief Coroner’s remit). It does not apply to coroners in Northern Ireland and it does not apply in Scotland (which does not have coroners).

This Guidance is designed to help coroners continue to exercise their judicial decisions independently and in accordance with the law, but in the context of the extraordinary pressures which are present.
