The Grant County Courthouse has reopened after being shut down because of COVID-19.

According to the Sheridan Headlight newspaper, County Judge Randy Pruitt said the county has hired a man who works the front door and who checks people in and takes their temperature before they are allowed to enter the building.

The newspaper reported that face masks are required and people are urged to use the front entrance to the building.

Pruitt said people with disabilities and who need access to the ramp should go to the back door and contact county officials who will allow those people in.

He also told the newspaper that traffic at the courthouse is expected to increase because of trials next week.
