The Alexandria Courthouse was deep cleaned last weekend after an employee of the General District Court tested positive to COVID-19, according to the Alexandria Sheriff’s Office.
“On Friday October 16, 2020 the Alexandria General District Court was notified that an employee tested positive for COVID-19,” Undersheriff Tim Gleeson of the Judicial and Special Operations Bureau told ALXnow in an email.
Gleeson said that the court “immediately” asked for help from the Virginia Supreme Court and the Alexandria Health Department. He also said that this is the first time anyone in the courthouse has tested positive for the virus since the pandemic began in March.
“Following the Health Department’s guidance, the remaining Court dockets of the day were continued to later dates in order to get the Court deep cleaned,” Gleeson said. “The deep cleaning of the General District Court, including all courtrooms, public spaces, and workspaces was completed on Friday afternoon.”
Court operations continued on Monday, October 19.
