The Wyoming County Commissioners met on Friday morning and decided unanimously to keep all courthouse offices closed until Wednesday, Nov. 18.
In an email sent out by commissioner chair Rick Wilbur, he explained, “This will give 14 days for those on quarantine that were exposed on or before election day to meet CDC guidelines.”
Any employees whose direct exposure was later than election day have been told to quarantine until a later date, adhere to CDC requirements and not to show up for work until the requirement is met.
The commissioners will hold a virtual meeting on Tuesday Nov. 17 at 9 am, and the public is welcome to participate by using the sign in credentials at www.wycopa.org. No one will be admitted to the meeting in person.
Until further notice, the courthouse is open to employees only. All business except emergency court proceedings will be handled virtually, by telephone or email. All employees must adhere to CDC guidelines for social distancing and mask wearing. All employees must enter the building and go through security to have their temperature checked. No exceptions will be made.
“We must all work together to stop the spread of this scourge among our employees,” Wilbur stated “Stay safe and pray for our employees and other Wyoming County residents who have been affected.”
