Work of the Office Continues, Conover Vows
TUCSON, ARIZONA – January 10, 2021 – After several employees tested positive for the COVID-19 virus at the end of last week, the Pima County Attorney’s Office (PCAO), housed at the Legal Services Building (32 N. Stone Ave.) in downtown Tucson, will be closed to PCAO employees and the public on Monday, Jan. 11, and Tuesday, Jan. 12.
Closing the building is unprecedented, but necessary “in order to keep operations going and to make sure that we don’t hit that brick wall of not having enough healthy staff,” said Pima County Attorney Laura Conover. The closure will allow PCAO employees time to obtain a COVID test and to receive results. Employees will be telecommuting from home while the building is cleaned and sanitized.
“Thank you to each person who has been reporting positive tests to (the PCAO HR department),” Laura said in an Office-wide email to staff on Sunday. “You are helping us to keep your colleagues safe.”
Laura has experienced mild COVID-19 symptoms herself since potentially being exposed early last week. She was tested on Saturday and expects to receive results within the next 24 hours.
