The Guilford County Courthouse has closed its Superior and District courtrooms in Greensboro for the remainder of the week. 

Court officials say one employee with the Guilford County Sheriff’s Office tested positive, prompting quarantine precautions and contact tracing procedures.

The Superior and District courtrooms will be closed through Friday. Courts in High Point will remain open.

The county uncovered five positive cases at the Greensboro facility in July, which also led to a weeklong suspension of services.

The Forsyth County Courthouse has limited operations this week after five workers tested positive.
