The Bond County Health Department also issued a statement on their Facebook page Wednesday afternoon, regarding the Closure of the Driver Services Facility in Greenville, which closed this week due to a positive COVID case among the staff.
The statement reads, “We would like to let you know we have contacted the Illinois Department of Public Health and the Illinois Secretary of State’s Office in an attempt to determine who may have had close contact with a COVID-19 positive individual. As soon as we have answers, our team will reach out. In the meantime, it appears that if you were in the facility between August 18 and 21, you should self-monitor for symptoms and consider consulting with your healthcare provider.”
