INVERNESS, FL. In response to the COVID-19 pandemic, Citrus County’s Administrative Judge, the Honorable Richard Howard, has signed and executed an Administrative Order (AO-C-2020-19) wherein all persons entering the Citrus County Courthouse or the Clerk Annex shall be screened and will have a body temperature taken and reviewed before access is allowed. Any person with a body temperature equal to or above 100.4 degrees Fahrenheit will be denied access. The screenings will begin on Thursday, March 26th at both locations.
