Radcliff City Hall was closed to in-person traffic Wednesday as the building underwent a room-by-room treatment with disinfectant.

Mayor J.J. Duvall said all municipal buildings are being treated as a precaution against the COVID-19 coronavirus.

Duvall said he anticipates City Hall being reopened possibly as early as today. He expects to receive an all-clear notice sometime Thursday.

Colvin Community Center will be closed Friday as an identical disinfectant process is conducted.

City employees were working from home Wednesday and able to conduct most business remotely, similar to how city government operated during more stringent COVID restrictions.

Duvall did not have a total for the costs of treating the municipal buildings handy when contacted late Wednesday, but said it was “a few hundred.”

The building’s fire alarm system also is malfunctioning, Duvall said. False alarms sounded repeatedly Wednesday, he said, and the system had to be reset at least five times per hour. He hopes to have a technician resolve that problem today as well.
