ATHENS, Ala. – Athens residents will soon be able to conduct in-person business at City Hall once again.
Mayor Ronnie Marks announced Friday that City Hall will reopen to the public on Monday, August 23.
In a statement, Marks said he erred on the side of caution when he closed city hall on Aug. 9 after multiple employees and some spouses were diagnosed with COVID-19.
Employees who weren’t diagnosed continued to work from the office during the closure.
No additional employees tested positive for COVID-19, and the City did additional sanitizing within City Hall prior to announcing the reopening, according to Marks.
