ST. LOUIS — A St. Louis Sheriff’s deputy overseeing jury selection Tuesday at St. Louis’ Carnahan Courthouse has tested positive.
A spokesman from the 22nd Judicial Circuit of Missouri Carnahan Courthouse said the deputy developed symptoms Tuesday. The rapid result test he took Wednesday came back negative, but a second test he took Thursday was positive.
The spokesman said 34 people, including jurors and court staff, had contact with the deputy. Court authorities have notified all 34 people. All the locations where the deputy was on Tuesday were deep cleaned.
The deputy last appeared in the courts Tuesday and is quarantining at home, the spokesman said.
