WALLINGFORD — The town clerk’s office reopened Monday after an employee tested negative for COVID-19 over the weekend.

The office was closed Friday after an employee, whose name has not been released, showed symptoms of COVID-19.

Town Health Director Stephen Civitelli confirmed the negative test result Monday.

Civitelli said last week that there have been a total of five town employees who have tested positive for COVID-19, including a police officer who has since recovered. 

The town law department is reviewing a request for further information on cases among employees because “it pertains to employee personal health,” he said Monday via email.

Town Clerk Barbara Thompson was not available for comment Monday.

Town Hall closed to public traffic on March 30. About a week earlier, the town clerk’s office had a counter window installed to minimize person-to-person contact during transactions.

The town clerk’s office now accepts visitors by appointment only. Town land records are available online through a database, though copy fees still apply.
