The Historic Courthouse and Regional Office of Education in Hillsboro will reopen for daily operations at 8 a.m. on Monday, June 1, according to Montgomery County Sheriff Rick Robbins and County Board Chairman Evan Young.
“Montgomery County Elected Officials, county board and department heads thank the public for their support while the building was closed due to the pandemic,” Robbins said. “We welcome our employees and public back, with each office providing all services as prior to the closing.”
The sheriff emphasized that because the threat of the pandemic is not over, no one will be allowed in the building without a mask that covers both the nose and mouth. Robbins requests everyone that enters the Historic Courthouse to adhere to social distancing, and hand sanitizer will be provided throughout the building. All deliveries will be able to resume within the building, adhering to the mask mandate.
The sheriff requests conducting business using the internet, mail, telephone and the drop box on the north side of building when possible. Those with COVID-19 symptoms such as a high temperature or flu-like symptoms should not enter the Historic Courthouse.
“Please use caution while you are out and about town,” Robbins said. “It is all of our responsibilities to protect ourselves and each other.”
The Montgomery County Courthouse at 120 N. Main north of the Historic Courthouse, remains open only for limited purposes at this time.
