On the evening of July 10, an employee of the Clerk’s office notified management that they had tested positive for COVID-19. The employee is a deputy clerk and typically interacts with the public.
Individuals who had direct contact with the employee have been notified and directed to self-quarantine and/or self-monitor. The affected workspaces and common areas will be disinfected and sanitized, and the employee has been placed on leave until cleared by a physician to return to work.
“We are following recommendations from the CDC and taking all necessary precautions to protect our employees, judicial partners and the public,” Chief Deputy Clerk Tiana Garner said. “Our thoughts and prayers for a quick recovery are with our employee.”
The Clerk’s office at the Gwinnett County Justice and Administration Center is closed to the public until Monday, July 27. The satellite office located at the Gwinnett County Detention Center will continue normal operations.
