ROBERTSON COUNTY TENNESSEE: (Smokey Barn News) – According to Robertson County Mayor Billy Vogle, the Robertson County Health Department will be providing drive-thru testing for COVID-19 starting Monday.
The testing will run Monday-Friday from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m., but only for people who have symptoms, such as fever, cough and difficulty breathing. If you are not experiencing any of these symptoms, then you will not be tested.
These hours may be extended in the coming days as we receive more testing supplies. That information will be made available as it comes.
The action follows Mayor Billy Vogle’s declaration of State of Local Emergency for Robertson County on Wednesday. FULL STORY The declaration allows local officials to suspend policies, request mutual-aid assistance, employ workers and distribute public funds.
As far as county operations go, the Robertson County Courthouse and government buildings will be closed to the public from Friday, March 20 until further notice. Offices are staffed and open for business by email and telephone.
“We are following guidelines set by the governor and the president. Department heads are having employees work in shifts to keep distance between them and the county’s maintenance and housekeeping employees are working diligently to keep the buildings sanitized,” Vogle said.
“I am proud of our department heads and employees for their dedication to serve the citizens of Robertson County while preserving their own health and safety,” Vogle said. “As county employees, we answer to the public, and we need to be as open and available as we possibly can, but also take care of ourselves to help stop the spread of the virus.”
The county’s Emergency Management Agency is working on getting PPE supplies for our departments. The personal protection equipment such as masks and gloves will go a long way in keeping our employees safe.
The courthouse and other county offices will be open for business by email and telephone.
