An employee at the York County Clerk of Courts office has tested positive for COVID-19, county officials said Wednesday.

In a news release, Clerk of Courts Dan Byrnes said the employee received the positive test results Wednesday after having self-quarantined since Friday, and immediately notified their supervisor.

The employee hasn't had any direct contact with the public because their job duties don't require interacti, Byrnes said.

The York Dispatch has reported on at least nine other incidents of judicial center workers becoming ill with the virus that has caused a worldwide pandemic.

As of noon Tuesday, there had been nearly 10,000 cases of COVID-19 in York County since the pandemic began, and 237 virus-related deaths, the state Department of Health reported.
