Trumbull County buildings shut down after some employees exhibit COVID-19 symptoms

Coronavirus

All employees, other than essential ones, have been sent home until further notice

WARREN, Ohio (WKBN) – All Trumbull County’s buildings and offices are shut down after employees were found to have symptoms of COVID-19.

The decision to temporarily shut down the buildings as a precaution was made by Trumbull County Commissioners, in conjunction with Trumbull County’s health commissioner.

All employees, other than essential ones, have been sent home until further notice.

A news release from the county states that the employees are being treated as presumptive coronavirus cases until testing confirms a diagnosis.

“Pray for our county employees, and be safe out there. Everybody take precautions, you know, do the six-foot rule, wash your hands and everything that’s being preached through our president, down to our governor, down to your county commissioners,” said Commissioner Dan Polivka.

As of right now, the buildings will be closed through Tuesday evening, but Polivka said it could be longer.
