RICHMOND — Employees in the Wayne County and Wayne Township assessors' offices have been working from home recently during a 14-day quarantine after three county assessor's office employees tested positive for COVID-19.

According to Ken Paust, president of the Wayne County Board of Commissioners, all of the employees in the two assessors' offices were tested after one person was found to have been infected by the novel coronavirus.

That round of testing found the other two cases. None of the three individuals is seriously ill, Paust said.

Employees in both offices will wrap up their mandated 14-day quarantine period around the end of this week. In the meantime, they are working from home.

Other employees continue to work at the Wayne County Administration Building, where the assessors' offices are located. That building remains closed to the public except for those who have an appointment.
