The Marshall County Commission has postponed its meeting scheduled for Nov. 11 due to coronavirus cases among county employees.

The meeting will now be held on Nov. 18 at 10 a.m.

Chairman Jim Hutchinson said on Monday that multiple people in the commission’s office tested positive.

Those in contact are getting tested, including himself, Hutchinson said. He said the meeting that's delayed includes "housekeeping" items, so delaying won't cause any problems or major issues.

According to Hutchinson, three or four of his staff members of six in the commission office have the virus.

Marshall County is at "very high" risk for the spread of coronavirus, as of Monday, according to the Alabama Department of Public Health.

Hutchinson is urging people to stay at home as much as possible. He said he’s unaware of any issues at the courthouse, but the Marshall County Sheriff’s Office is also dealing with cases.
