Court employee tests positive for COVID-19


Earlier this morning, a Boone County Superior Court II employee tested positive for COVID-19.

The employee has not returned to work since receiving the positive test result. Boone County policy states that any county employee who tests positive for COVID-19 may be permitted to return to work after a 14-day quarantine and after they have received an additional negative COVID-19 test result.

Boone County Superior Court II and its offices will be closed for sanitizing and are expected to reopen June 3.

Other employees who may have been in contact with the employee have been notified and were sent home so that they may be tested and self-monitor symptoms. They will be permitted to return to work June 3 if they receive a negative test result. As a precaution, the clerk’s office, Superior Court I and its offices will be sanitized before reopening June 1.

Voting areas will also be sanitized and will be available for voting May 30. County buildings will continue to be closed to the general public for the time being. If a resident has a court hearing scheduled between today and June 3, they are encouraged to call the Courts for direction.

In-person voting for the June 2 Indiana primary will continue as scheduled at the courthouse.
