The Wyoming County Court House will be closed until Monday, Nov. 16, due to an outbreak of positive COVID-19 cases among employees.
The courthouse actually closed last Thursday (Nov. 5) when Commissioners became aware of two positive cases among its employees.
On Monday afternoon, the commissioners met virtually and unanimously voted to keep the Courthouse closed through the following Monday, November 16, 2020.
Commissioner chair Rick Wilbur noted Tuesday, “We have four employees who tested positive and employees who came in contact have been or will be tested soon. Department heads and a limited number of others who didn’t have contact and tested negative will be checking the mail and phone messages to handle any emergencies that may arise.”
He added, “The justice system will be open to handle emergencies, is operating with a skeleton crew and will be operating virtually. This order does not affect offices located in Hollow Crest or at the Robinson Complex. If you have business in any of these locations, please call in advance to make arrangements.
The Commissioner’s meeting scheduled for Nov. 10 and the work session on Nov. 12, 2020 have both been cancelled. They have been rescheduled to Tuesday Nov. 17, at 9 a.m.
Wilbur underscores, “This meeting will be held virtually and no visitors including the press will be allowed in person. Sign on details will be posted on our website. Please keep Wyoming County employees and all others in your prayers.”
