Member of central Pa. district attorney’s office tests positive for COVID-19

Over the weekend, a member of the York County District Attorney’s Office tested positive for COVID-19, the office announced on Monday

In a statement from District Attorney David Sunday, he explained that his colleague is “recovering under quarantine.”

After receiving the news of the positive test, the District Attorney’s Office took “all appropriate actions” recommended by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention.

The employee will remain home until approved to return to the office by a physician, Sunday wrote. The office is working to communicate with anyone who may have been exposed and are at risk as defined by the CDC.

At the start of the pandemic, workplace safety guidelines were established that included modified work shifts and hours the office was open to the public. Contact between people was limited, social distancing is encouraged and masks and hand sanitizers are supplied for employees and visitors to use.

Employees with any symptoms or who feel sick are told to stay home and seek medical guidance, Sunday said.

“The health and well-being of our employees and the general public continues to be a priority as we navigate this challenging and ever-changing environment,” Sunday said. The office will continue to follow and support CDC guidelines and Sunday believes they can continue to safely operate the office.
