Officials in White County have issued a Local Disaster Emergency Declaration after six cases of COVID-19 were discovered inside the White County Courthouse in Monticello.

Additional people inside the Courthouse at the time had also been exposed.

White County Emergency Management Department sent out a notice Monday confirming cases had been in the Government building.  Additional people inside the Courthouse have also been exposed.

The case prompted new regulations to take effect at the Courthouse by the Health Department, including:

  • Anyone entering must wear a mask
  • Limited entry to essential Government functions only
  • All county officers and employees have been encouraged to work from home
  • Screening of all county employees and visitors entering the building

Early voting had begun at the courthouse, following a deep clean and sanitation efforts that will continue.  Voting stations have since been moved to tents outside to keep the public out of the building. 

To date, White County has experienced 226 case of COVID-19 and eight deaths related to the disease.
