More positive cases of COVID-19 have been discovered among staff at the Guilford County Greensboro Courthouse. 

A county investigation has uncovered five positive cases, which means the incident is now being classified as a cluster under the reporting guidelines.

Officials have extended the suspension of some services through July 31st.

According to a news release, only proceedings involving domestic violence, juvenile delinquency, the Department of Health and Human Services, and first appearances will be held.

All other courts will remain closed, and the Clerk of the Superior Court will be operating on limited hours.

The Guilford County Division of Public Health County has been working to contact all potentially affected staff members, as well as their close contacts.

There have been no changes in services at the county courthouse in High Point.
