Effective Monday, Jan. 3, 2022, at 8 a.m., face coverings will be mandated in the  Troup County Government Center’s common areas by a new judicial order from Chief Superior Court Judge Simpson.

Common areas include hallways, public restrooms, elevators, waiting areas, courtrooms, etc.

All employees and visitors must wear a mask covering the nose and mouth while in these areas.

This order only affects the Troup County Government Center and no other outlying buildings.

In an effort to prioritize community safety due to the recent increase in COVID-19 cases, the county continues to encourage individuals to get vaccinated, including the booster shot; wear protective face coverings; wash hands often; practice proper social distancing; and stay home if experiencing any symptoms of COVID-19.
