WEDOWEE - Randolph County Courthouse has been shut down for the second time due to COVID-19.

According to Chief Financial Officer Travis Heard, the main courthouse building was shut down at 5 p.m. on Tuesday and will remain closed until Tuesday, Jan. 26. The closure affects only the main building and does not include other county offices. Heard said the main building will be deep cleaned later this week. Heard said the annex will remain open, and the commission workshop meeting would be held as scheduled at 3 p.m. on Thursday.

This is the second time in less than a year the courthouse has been closed. The revenue commissioner's office was closed last week, and the probate judge's office was closed earlier this year.

"We apologize for the inconvenience, but we must think about the health and safety of the employees and the citizens of this county," Heard said.

The tag and property tax and office portion of the Revenue Office will be closed until January, 25th due to COVID-19 exposure.

The deadline extension for Motor Vehicles is February 26th. No extension is given for Property tax as they were already delinquent.
