Original story below has been modified for clarity…
NOTTINGHAM, MD—Baltimore County Councilman David Marks reported on Monday that his staff had contacted the Nottingham post office and confirmed that no employees there had tested positive for coronavirus.
Several rumors were circulating online over the weekend, but those posts were likely referring to a confirmed report at the Dundalk post office.
Councilman Marks has spoken with Todd Crandell, his colleague in the Dundalk area, about the work they are doing to mitigate the problem.
“In the future, before stories are circulated on the Internet, please confirm them first,” said Coucilman Marks. “Please keep all of our postal employees in your thoughts as they continue to do their vital work.”
The Nottingham post office is located at 4990 Mercantile Road (21236).
The U.S. Postal Service reported last week that an employee from the Brooklyn post office and an employee from the Dundalk post office had tested positive.
