County treasurer hit by COVID-19, City Hall reports negative tests

By Times Staff

The Sullivan County Treasurer's office will be working remotely for
the next week and will continue to be closed to the public following
that due to COVID-19.

"I have tested positive for COVID-19 due to an exposure the past
weekend, July 31," Treasurer Janna Johnson wrote on the office's
Facebook page on Friday. "If you have been in contact with the office
or me from (Aug. 3 to 6) and are symptomatic, contact your health care

Meanwhile, the City of Sullivan has made the decision to allow a
limited number of employees back in the office beginning Tuesday.

Earlier this week, it was announced that three Sullivan City Hall
employees had tested positive for COVID-19. The employees returning to
City Hall have been cleared with negative results.

Mayor Lamb, Department heads, and several employees decided it was
their due diligence to opt for testing and have taken above and beyond
precautions and safety measures to avoid spreading the virus.

"We wanted to be completely positive that we were "negative” even
though several of us did not have direct contact with those infected,”
states Mayor Clint Lamb. “City government cannot and will not shut
down, so we will go back to the office to be as productive as possible
during this time, while continuing to take increased precautions to
protect our employees and our citizens.”

City Hall will remain closed to the public until further notice. Stay
tuned for updates as the state continues to provide recommendations
and updated mandates for Hoosiers
