It said the temporary closures have been necessitated by positive cases of COVID-19 that have been recorded at these courts.
The closure is to allow for fumigation of the premises and testing of staff. The three courts will re-open on Monday 5 July 2021.
The JSC further advised litigants and legal practitioners who may want to file any papers at these courts to get in touch with the Registrar whose numbers will be displayed at the court houses.
Just over a week ago, the JSC closed seven courts across the country after some magistrates, prosecutors and ancillary staff have tested positive for COVID-19.
In a notice, JSC Secretary Walter Chikwanha confirmed the closure of seven courts after Covid-19 positive cases were detected.
The courts are Chinhoyi, Karoi, Kariba, Bindura, Mt Darwin, Mutare Magistrates Courts and the High Court seat in Mutare.
