Two Elkhart City employees test positive for COVID-19 after budget meeting
ELKHART, Ind. --- The city of Elkhart is closing City Hall Thursday and Friday after two employees tested positive for COVID-19, Mayor Rod Roberson announced Thursday.
City Hall will be closed for the rest of the day Thursday and all day Friday for deep cleaning. It will reopen Monday at 8 a.m.
The two employees attended the budget hearings on Saturday, so all attendees have been sent for testing and will be working remotely until they receive their test results.
“This virus is with us and we must remain vigilant. None of us are immune and we have to continue to mask up, sanitize, and take this seriously. My staff are essential to this city and their health is my top concern. Thankfully our infected staff members are mildly symptomatic and we will continue to hope and pray for their swift recovery. This is a bump in the road where we will take the necessary time to make sure everyone is healthy and get back to full force as soon as possible,” Mayor Roberson said.
