Judicial center

Two more employees test positive

Two more York County Judicial Center employees have tested positive for the virus that causes COVID-19, according to the Administrative Office of Pennsylvania Courts, which has previously alerted the public to 25 other such employee infections in the county's courthouse.

One of the infected employees last worked in the judicial center on Jan. 15, and the other last worked there on Tuesday according to news releases sent last week from AOPC spokesperson Stacey Witalec.

At this point there's no indication the public was exposed to either employee, she said.

The AOPC has said it cannot make public in which judicial center offices the coronavirus exposure cases are being reported.

The state agency isn't notified of every case of COVID-19 exposure in York County's courthouse. It's notified only in cases where affected employees' jobs are considered part of the state court system, Witalec has said.
