City of Chamblee Court staffer tests positive for Covid-19

Shamblee

The City of Chamblee late yesterday(Oct. 8) was informed that a member of its municipal court staff tested positive for COVID-19. The court staff member was present during the Oct. 5 traffic court session but was not exhibiting any symptoms at that time. The staffer was not in close proximity with any attendees and followed social distancing guidelines.

This court staffer was not present at the Oct. 8 traffic court session.

Per the Statewide Judicial Emergency Order, the city released municipal court operating guidelines on May 13 and later updated them on July 1 that require all attendees to wear masks, maintain 6-feet distance at all times and scan all attendees’ temperatures upon entry. Only 25 attendees were permitted in the building at once to reduce congestion and adhere to social distancing requirements. All attendees were assigned a number card upon entry and returned the number upon exit. This ensured the maximum number of attendees were allowed in the building at one time.

Judges, solicitors and court staff were separated from the public and distanced from each other with Plexiglas partitions at the judges’ benches and solicitor and public defenders’ work space areas. Court staff who were in close proximity with the individual who tested positive are self-quarantining for 10 days and will return to work pending a negative test result at that time.

Court sessions on Oct. 12 and 14 are cancelled. If you have a court date during this time, please visit www.chambleega.com/173/Municipal-Court for up to date information about rescheduling your court date.
