‘Germ Guards’ Installation In Progress at County Office Complex


HUNTINGDON (May 11) —The installation of germ guards at the four front offices at the Carroll County Office Complex on High Street is underway. The building is locked to the public and will reopen either May 18 or the last week of May.

Joseph Butler, Carroll County Mayor, said “germ guards”, are being installed between the clerks and people visiting the offices. The first office to receive the new protection is the County Clerk’s Office. Additional glass shields will be installed in the offices of Register of Deeds, Property Assessor, and Trustee.

Each has a small service slot underneath the glass to pass documents.

Mayor Butler said non-touch hand sanitizing stations are also being installed at the complex.

In recent weeks, during the pandemic, office clerks, sheriff’s deputies, and some other personnel have worked alternating shifts so not all staff members are in attendance at any one time.
