WACO, TX — The Waco Municipal Court will be temporarily closed after an employee tested positive for COVID-19.

A spokesman for the City of Waco says following one employee at the Waco Municipal Court testing positive for COVID-19 over the weekend, Judge Christopher Taylor has elected to close the Court for at least fourteen days in order for other employees who may have been exposed while at work to quarantine for the protection of both staff and citizens.

"Although all staff and citizens who have visited the Court have been required to wear face coverings, the City is taking these steps to protect everyone and to help stop the spread of the coronavirus."

The Waco Fire Department is doing a complete disinfection of the entire facility.

Persons can continue to conduct their business with the Court online or by using the safe drop box located at the Court.

This same procedure was in effect when the Court was closed during the Shelter in Place Order.
