Both locations of the Cherokee County Tax Commissioner’s Office closed Tuesday after officials were notified an employee had been exposed to COVID-19, the disease caused by the novel coronavirus.

As a result of this, the tax commissioner’s offices at 2870 Marietta Highway, Canton and 155 Towne Lake Parkway, Woodstock will remain closed for at least 14 days until the employee’s test returns negative. During the closure, the buildings will be cleaned and sanitized, county officials said.

“For the health and safety of my staff and the citizens of Cherokee County, the Tax Commissioner’s Office will be closed to the public due to an employee with a severe exposure with a high probability of a positive result for COVID-19 and who is also experiencing symptoms,” Tax Commissioner Sonya Little said. “Per the County Attorney and CDC guidelines, we are closing our offices as we await test results. I apologize for any inconvenience this may cause, and I appreciate your patience and understanding during this time.”

Little also said updates regarding reopening of the offices will be posted to the tax commissioner’s website and Facebook page.
