The Roszkowski Courthouse In Rockford Closed Through May 20 For Detailed Cleaning After Employee Tests Positive For COVID-19

Dear Roszkowski Courthouse Occupants:

This evening, the General Services Administration (GSA) notified me that an individual who works on many floors throughout the Stanley J. Roszkowski Courthouse has tested positive for the COVID-19 virus. Because of the potential contact throughout the building, we understand that GSA will hire a contractor to conduct a detailed cleaning of the entire Courthouse. Only a small number of employees have been working at the Roszkowski Courthouse since March 18, 2020. Pursuant to Centers for Disease Control and Prevention guidelines, anyone who has been in the Courthouse in the last ten days should remain at home and practice social distancing for 14 days. Staff are encouraged to continue monitoring yourselves for symptoms associated with the virus and contact your healthcare provider with any questions. The Roszkowski Courthouse will be closed through May 20, 2020. No staff members or members of the public will be admitted into the building. Persons who need court action should refer to the Court website.
