McDONOUGH – Henry County re-opened a number of its facilities on Monday, including the Henry County Administration building.
The administration office, located at 140 Henry Pkwy., was one of those facilities that re-opened. According to Melissa Robinson, the county’s public information officer, Henry County residents took advantage of the reopening, and she said a lot of foot traffic was present downstairs in the tag office.
In addition, the Henry County recycling center, located at 65 West Asbury Road in McDonough, right off Ga. Highway 20, also saw large crowds take advantage of the reopening.
Those looking to come to Henry County’s reopened facilities are required to wear a face covering of some sort and will have their temperature checked for a fever.
The facilities had been closed since mid-March due to the coronavirus COVID-19 pandemic, and many county employees switched to a teleworking schedule.
A variety of county facilities re-opened on Monday, including the Henry County Airport, Henry County Animal Control, the Department of Transportation, the Elections Office, as well as all walking trails, paths and greenways operated by Henry County Parks and Recreation.
Additional facilities set to re-open include the outdoor tennis and pickleball courts, the Cotton Fields Golf Course, the J.P. Mosley disc golf course, the BMX track, the RC car track and the Red Hawk RC Airport.
Not included in the list of re-opening facilities, however, are Henry County’s senior centers, as well as the rest of the county’s parks and recreation facilities. Robinson said the county’s spring sports have been canceled.
