BOYLE COUNTY COURTHOUSE TAKES ADDITIONAL STEPS AFTER COVID-19 OUTBREAK

 

BOYLE COUNTY – – – Boyle County Judge Executive Howard P. Hunt III announces additional steps to ensure the safety of all who enter the Courthouse in light of Boyle County’s Covid-19 numbers.  

“Effective immediately, we will not permit any person to enter the courthouse or any offices without a properly worn mask, covering both the nose and mouth.  Furthermore, all guests will be subjected to a temperature check prior to admittance into the building,” explains Judge Hunt.  

“Over the past two days, we have learned that several of our own employees have tested positive; so my office immediately contacted Brent Blevins of the Boyle County Health Department.  With Brent’s guidance, we devised a plan for addressing the situation.    Internally, I have reiterated several measures such as requiring masks for all guests and staff, social distancing guidelines.”  

ServePro® is on the scene today to deep clean the courthouse and each department is taking extra measures to sanitize their surfaces throughout the workday.  

“I want the public to be confident that the Boyle County Courthouse has been sanitized and we are practicing all Healthy at Work protocols so that we can conduct business in a safe manner,” concludes Judge Hunt, “The Courthouse remains open and accessible for those who have business within the building.”
