County Measures To Fight Coronavirus

The Lackawanna County Government Center, Courthouse and County offices are very busy places.

There is a great deal of foot traffic in our buildings every day, with people coming for court matters, legal activities and business transactions.

In light of the Coronavirus outbreak, the Commissioners have initiated several measures to keep all facilities clean, sanitized and germ-free.

In a joint statement, Commissioners Jerry Notarianni, Debi Domenick and Chris Chermak explained that the “County Administration is doing its very best to combat the Coronavirus in the Government Center, the Courthouse and its other administrative/professional/public locations.”

For employees and the general public’s safety, the Buildings & Grounds staff disinfects the time clocks, elevator buttons and inside the elevators for the prevention of Coronavirus and the regular flu on a daily basis. Additional hand sanitizer stations have been installed at the time clocks and other public areas. The floors, restrooms, railings and public accessories are Cloroxed every night.

In regard to our Court system, all individuals must still follow through on their court requirements/appearances. To that end, the Lackawanna County Courts have conferred about this action with both the Administrative Office of the Pennsylvania Courts and surrounding County Court administrators. All bodies are implementing measures to reduce exposure to the virus.

For the safety of everyone involved, the County and Court system are asking that anyone who has traveled outside the country or was exposed to a contaminated area and/or suffering from flu-like symptoms, to please not enter any public facility until you are feeling well.

All of the sanitizing actions in every County facility and Courthouse will continue until the outbreak is over.
