Woods County employees given extra holiday
November 25, 2020
Woods County Commissioner John Smiley suggested Monday that county employees be given the remainder of the week off with pay. Since it’s already a short week with the Thanksgiving holiday, Smiley thought it would be beneficial in slowing the increasing number of Covid-19 cases.
The item wasn’t on the agenda but was brought up under new business.
Smiley said he already has an employee from the District 3 shed in quarantine. Several of the county offices have been affected by the coronavirus as well. The courthouse is currently closed although employees have been working.
