Lee Co. courthouse reopens after positive COVID-19 test

The Lee County Courthouse has reopened after closing for almost two weeks after an employee testified positive for COVID-19.

The courthouse closed on July 31 after one employee tested positive. The courthouse, including the district attorney’s office and clerk of court’s office, remained closed until Aug. 12 on the advice of the county health department, said Sharon Gladwell, a spokeswoman for the North Carolina Administrative Office of the Courts.

In the meantime, Lee County Sheriff Tracy Carter posted a message on Facebook, asking the public to wait two weeks before calling the Lee County Clerk of Court’s office to ask about the status of cases, “as they will be working diligently to push the backlogged information out.”
