Roswell Municipal Court is closed this week due to an employee testing positive for COVID-19. Court will reopen Jan. 6. after a scheduled holiday recess.

City officials learned that the employee tested positive on Sunday, spokesperson Julie Brechbill said.

The man who tested positive worked inside the courtroom but was socially distanced from others by six feet or more, Brechbill said.

Employees who came in contact with the positive staff member will be tested for COVID-19, a city statement said.

Court dates that were planned for this week will be rescheduled.
