Fayette County Commission President explains what to expect when visiting the courthouse under new guidelines

FAYETTEVILLE, WV (WOAY) – Courthouses have started reopening this week and here is what you can expect if you go into the Fayette County Courthouse.

There is only one entrance in the back.  A sheriff’s deputy will open the door for you and then ask you questions about symptoms and then will take your temperature.

Fayette County Commission President Denise Scalph says all who come in must be wearing a face covering.

“You’ll be given a little card with a number, and that’s how many people will be allowed in that particular office at that time whether it is the circuit clerk, county clerk or accessor that way we can protect you too as well,” Scalph said.

Each elected official and department head will have further instructions in their own offices about distancing and employee interaction.

You are encouraged to call ahead to see if business can be conducted over the phone before coming in.
