Macomb County learns of positive COVID-19 test for attorney who worked at the Macomb County Circuit Court

Today Macomb County learned of a positive test for Covid-19 of an attorney who was working in one of our Macomb County Circuit Court rooms. The attorney was in the court on March 16. Based on a risk assessment performed on this incident, and out of an abundance of caution, several Macomb County employees were recommended to self-quarantine for a period of 14 days.

Macomb County’s review indicated that it does not appear that there was any prolonged exposure to any other employees, as explained in CDC guidelines.

Macomb County places a top priority on our employees and our ability to provide service to the community.

“As this situation continues to evolve, we fully anticipate there will be more incidents in the workplace. We will continue to perform risk assessments to determine appropriate actions going forward,” said Macomb County Executive Mark A. Hackel.
