Monroe County Courthouse closing again due to spike in COVID-19

MONROE COUNTY, WV (WOAY) – Monroe County Courthouse will be closed starting on Friday, August 21, 2020, due to spike in COVID-19 cases.

The county commission released the following information:

”In response to a spike in the COVID-19 virus in the county, the Monroe County Commission announces that effective Friday, August 21st, 2020, the Monroe County Courthouse will be closed until further notice. Please be advised that all county offices will be staffed during this closure during normal business hours, which are Monday through Friday, from 8:30 am to 4:30 pm.

As many of our Courthouse services can be performed by telephone, mail, online, email, etc., and do not require a trip to the Courthouse, the Commission is requesting that you contact the appropriate office to see if they can provide the service you need by one of these alternate measures. Listed below are the phone numbers for Courthouse offices.

Out of an abundance of caution, and in accordance with the most recent guidelines and best practices recommended by the Center for Disease Control (CDC), our county Health Department, and the WV Department of Health and Human Resources, this action will reduce exposure to both customers and employees. This Commission will continue to actively engage with the Governor’s Office, as well as our county health department, the office of emergency management, and law enforcement, to make informed decisions. This closure will be re-evaluated regularly and may be changed if necessary.
