TUCSON, Arizona – The Pima County Attorney’s Office is forced to close for a few days after a number of employees test positive for COVID-19.
District Attorney Laura Conover tells KGUN9 that it is a decision that has never been made before.
According to Conover, the county operates on three floors in the building.
All three will undergo a thorough cleaning while the office is closed.
She says anyone who works for the downtown district attorney will continue to work for the county from home.
Conover said she made the decision “to keep operations going and to make sure we don’t hit the wall because we don’t have enough healthy staff.”
The law firm will be closed on Monday January 11th and Tuesday January 12th.
The staff was instructed to be tested.
Conover said she was waiting for her results.
