Lockdown measures implemented by the courts include a ban on jury trials, affecting the upcoming Gympie sittings of the District Court.
Many people appearing on charges are finding their matters adjourned for months, to reduce coronavirus risks.
Limits are in place on public access to the Gympie court, with defendants appearing only one at a time.
