So the county couldn't prevent a breakout in this tiny-ass old courthouse? What happens if one infected person goes into the big one downtown, rides the elevators, uses the toilets, goes to the assesssment office there and then over to collections? How many people is the bug going to get spread to?

Wouldn't we save money on all these courthouse offices and have less health risk, if those offices stayed closed and the employees kept working from home? The county might also figure out it doesn't need so many chief administrative officers, deputy chiefs, assistant deputy chiefs, directors, assistant directors, managers, assitant managers and supervisors doing all this supervising of the employees (and nothing else).
