City employees test positive for virus

The Donalsonville News was notified on Sunday, July 26 that a Donalsonville City Hall employee had tested positive for COVID-19, and a number of Donalsonville Police Department officers had tested positive as well.

City Hall office, public areas and the entire police department facility were deep cleaned and sanitized over the weekend.

City Hall closed beginning Monday, July 27, and all employees were tested for the virus. As of press time on Wednesday those test results had not been announced.  City Hall tentatively plans to reopen its offices to the public on a limited basis on Monday, August 3. Citizens coming into the office are encouraged to wear face coverings.

City Manager Steve Hicks commented that even though offices may be closed for COVID-19 safety precautions, all city services are continuing under normal operation. “The safety of our employees and all citizens in our community remains, as always, our top priority.”

Until normal office operations resume, residents are requested to call 229-524-2888 for City Hall related services and to dial 911 for public safety issues. 

Updates will be announced as soon as that information becomes available at donalsonvillenews.com and on the newspaper’s Facebook page.
