The Lawrence County Commission Annex on Alabama 157 could reopen to the public by the end of this week after one employee in the office tested positive for COVID-19, according to the Commission Chairman Bobby Burch.
“We are trying to keep everyone safe and have closed the building to the public,” Burch said. “I’ve ordered the building deep-cleaned twice to make sure it is safe. We hope to have it reopened by the end of the week.”
The annex was closed late last week to the public, he said.
