Van Buren Administrative Building Temporarily Closed

/ The Upper Cumberland's News Leader

Van Buren County’s administrative building will be closed until Tuesday.

The building closed Tuesday after an employee tested positive for COVID. Mayor Greg Wilson said the state Department of Health recommended the office to be closed at least three days.

“Out of caution, we were advised that the building need to be sanitized completely,” Wilson said. “And, that is what is going on today, actually this afternoon, going on right now and later on this afternoon.”

Court has been cancelled for Thursday and rescheduled to September 10th. Wilson said he recommends that the other employees exposed to get tested.

“That is up to them,” Wilson said. “I can not force them to be tested or anything like that. I can suggest that they be tested. It would be a good idea for that to happen. Hopefully, they will elect to do that, but that is up to those employees.”

There is a drop box at the front of the building if you have business to drop off. Wilson said the county will be in charge of sanitizing the building.
