Authorities say they’re closing down Brockton Superior Court and Marlborough District Court after an employee at each courthouse tested positive for coronavirus.

“The Brockton Superior Court and the Marlborough District Court will close temporarily for a disinfecting cleaning and will reopen on Thursday, October 8th,” the Massachusetts Court System tweeted Tuesday. “An employee in the Clerk’s office at each courthouse tested positive for COVID-19.”

Authorities also announced on Tuesday that Dudley District Court, which serves several Worcester County communities, will shut down temporarily shut down due to a COVID-19 infection. The courthouse will also be closed until Thursday.

The Worcester Trial Court on Main Street was closed in late September after a person contracted COVID and again in June after an employee tested positive for the virus.
