Warren City Hall will be closed this week because "we have more employees positive than at any other time since this pandemic began in March," Mayor James R. Fouts announced.
One key department administrator is on a ventilator at a nearby hospital and is sedated until oxygen levels significantly go up.
"I am taking steps to make sure all employees are tested," Fouts writes in a message on the city's website. "We are currently disinfecting the court, city hall, and the police department. The court also has a significant number out with COVID-19 so they too will be closed except for important cases."
Michigan saw record numbers of new Covid cases last week -- 29,614 over five days.
