Clinton County Closing Buildings Due To COVID-19 Spike
Clinton County buildings will be closing this week due to an increase in positivity rates of COVID-19 within the county.
On Wednesday, the Clinton County Board of Supervisors met for an emergency session to close County buildings due to the increase of COVID-19 positivity rates in Clinton County.
Michele Cullen, Clinton County Community Health Manager said in the press release,
“Clinton County and the state of Iowa’s positivity rates are alarming and people in the community need to be aware that the virus is wide spread throughout the county.”
Because of the increase in COVID-19 positivity rates, the Clinton County Board of Supervisors has decided to close county buildings to the public. They will allow for appointments to be taken to conduct county business. County buildings will be closed starting on noon this Thursday, November 12, and they will remain closed until further notice.
The Clinton County Courthouse will continue to be open for court activities as scheduled.
Citizens who would like to make an appointment with offices in the Clinton County Administration Building may call a specific department. Those numbers may be found here.
The Clinton County Board of Supervisors and Clinton County Public Health encourage Clinton County residents to follow virus prevention methods. Suggested prevention includes:
- Healthy hygiene practices,
