MOREHEAD, Ky. (WTVQ) – Rowan County is closing some government offices after three employees tested positive for COVID-19, according to the county.
Judge-Executive Harry Clark says two employees who work in the courthouse and one who works in the animal shelter tested positive for the virus.
As a result, the courthouse, animal shelter and county garage will be closed until further notice.
