North Hall Community Center closing briefly after employees test positive for COVID-19

By Lauren Hunter Multimedia Journalist

The North Hall Community Center will close at 5 p.m. on Monday, August 3 for overnight deep cleaning after several Hall County Parks & Leisure staff at the building have tested positive for COVID-19.

This closure will briefly impact early voting taking place at the community center for the August 11 runoff election; early voting will resume when the facility reopens on Tuesday, August 4 at 8 a.m. 

All other activites planned at the community center are cancelled until Monday, August 10 at 8 a.m., however the North Hall Technology Center will continue to offer curbside service and computers will be available by appointment only.

"Our methodical reopening plan calls for close monitoring of our operations as this pandemic progresses," Hall County Administrator Jock Connell said. "That's exactly what has been done in this case, and we believe it is in the best interest of public health at this time to temporarily close this facility for all activities other than early voting."

Voters can continue to cast their early voting ballots at one of the three other voting locations. These locations include the East Hall Community Center, Spout Springs Library and the Brenau Downtown Center. Voting will be held from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. through August 7.
