NASHVILLE, Tenn. (WKRN) – The Davidson County Clerk’s office is closed because of a COVID-19 outbreak.

Davidson County Clerk Brenda Wynn said they’re closing out of concern for their employees and members of the public because one-third of their staff tested positive for the virus.

“There was a young man who had been out a few days and he actually tried to come back today and just had to go back home. We could see how ill he looked. He was sweating and all,” Wynn said. “So again I’m concerned for the employees as well as the safety of the public.”

The main office building will remain closed Thursday and Friday to undergo a deep cleaning with plans to reopen Monday at 8 a.m.

“What’s happened is that it’s impacting our ability to serve the public effectively and efficiently,” she said, while reemphasizing worries about the virus spreading to customers and other workers. “Even though there are barriers there it hasn’t prevented the spread.”
