MACON COUNTY, Ala. (WSFA) - The Macon County Courthouse and its annex buildings, which were closed as of Monday because an essential employee tested positive for COVID-19, have reopened, according to EMA Director Frank Lee.

Lee said the closure and an extensive cleaning were prompted after the asymptomatic employee was tested last week and learned of his positive result over the weekend.

The employee’s job requires contact with much of the workforce inside the county courthouse and its annex buildings.

Lee said all employees were also being tested out of precaution.
