GLASGOW, Ky. (WBKO) - Update: The office announced they would close for the rest of the week through Friday and open back up on Monday.

The clerk’s office says that will give them enough time to make sure no one else is in the office tests positive and to make sure everyone gets tested.


The Barren County Clerk’s Office closed down earlier Wednesday after an employee tested positive for Covid-19.

Clerk Helena Chase Birdwell said she didn’t know when they would be back open, but they were working with the health department to get the entire office tested.

“I don’t know if this will just be for this afternoon, or if we will have to be closed for a few days, I don’t know yet,” said Birdwell.

There is a mask requirement at the Barren County Government Center in place effective immediately.
