MIDDLETOWN, Md. (WDVM) — The Town of Middletown office is closed as of noon on Monday after an employee tested positive for COVID-19.
The town said they are closing the office to disinfect, and to allow other employees to get tested. No further information was available on the town’s website. There will be more information after the building has been disinfected, the town said.
In an email to WDVM, Burgess John Miller added that another staff member, who was in contact with the employee who tested positive, is being tested and those results are pending. Miller said that all staff is being tested through Tuesday as a precaution.
An announcement is expected by the end of the week or early next week, Miller stated, on when the office will reopen to staff and eventually to the public.
The town told WDVM that residents don’t need to go to the office for any essential services. “All town business can be conducted by letter, phone, email, or video conferencing,” the email said.
