HONESDALE – The Wayne County Commissioners continue to strengthen the COVID-19 protocols for those entering the Courthouse – both employees and visitors.
At this time, visitor access to all county facilities are limited to necessary functions, and individuals are greeted with a series of questions about any recent travel to COVID-19 hotspots. Beginning Monday, April 13, they will also be encouraged to wear a mask to cover mouth and nose.
Members of the public are asked to wear them at all times, while employees are encouraged to wear them while moving through the buildings and when interacting with the public. The lastest measures, like all the others before, are based on recommendations from the PA Department of Health and the Centers for Disease Control.
Social distancing, hygiene and disinfection measures remain in place.
During the April 9 meeting, Commissioner Chairman Brian Smith commended the employees and the entire community for evolving and adapting to the new realities under the threat of COVID-19. He also praised the community for their cooperation in help slow the spread of the virus.
“My heart goes out to families that are effected, and I pray it’s over soon,” Smith stated.
