Approximately 150 people work in the building, that houses the departments of Health and Human Services, the Columbia County Mental Health Center, the Columbia County District Attorney’s Office and the Office for the Aging. Mabb said contract tracing was done, and the few who were exposed to the positive cases had been vaccinated. Those vaccinated and exposed did not need to quarantine, he said.
