DeKalb County’s certification of its election results may be postponed after an elections employee tested positive for COVID-19, forcing a 14-day self-quarantine for all employees who have come in contact with the employee.
The offices of the DeKalb County Voter Registration and Elections, at 4380 Memorial Dr., Decatur, did not open today to the public after an employee tested positive yesterday for COVID-19.
The temporary employee began work on June 11. A 14-day self-quarantine and a COVID-19 test have been recommended by the DeKalb County Board of Health for all employees who work in the office and who may have come in contact with that employee.
The county’s Board of Elections will seek permission from the Georgia Secretary of State to postpone the certification of DeKalb’s June 9 election results, which was to be certified today.
