City Hall to reopen to public on Aug. 23

Athens Mayor Ronnie Marks said he will reopen Athens City Hall to the public on Monday, Aug. 23.
Marks said he erred on the side of caution when he closed City Hall to the public on Aug. 9 after multiple employees and some of their spouses received a diagnosis of COVID-19. Although employees without COVID-19 continued to work at their offices, this effort stopped walk-in traffic and limited person-to-person contact with the public.
“For the safety of the citizens and other employees, we did additional sanitizing measures and closed to walk-in traffic to help stop the spread,” Marks said. “As of now, no additional employees at City Hall have tested positive.”
Marks said he will continue to monitor the evolving situation with department heads and if necessary, will take steps to address COVID-related issues as they arise at city facilities. The city will continue to provide updates through Nixle alerts, social media and its website at
