As a result of the positive tests, the Montgomery County Government Center is now closed to both employees and the public for two weeks.
The following government functions will continue through this shutdown:
- Emergency services and public safety;
- Operations at the Montgomery County Court House (some restrictions apply);
- Solid waste convenience sites and disposal;
