After one long year of being closed due to the coronavirus pandemic, the Guntersville Electric Board has finally reopened its front lobby to the public as of Thursday, April 1. Electric Board manager Jason Kirkland was happy to announce this news, noting how the lobby has remained empty since last April when the pandemic was making its rough start.

Of course, there are a few changes to protocols and times with the lobby’s reopening. Kirkland reported that the lobby will be operating on newly mended office hours, only from 10 a.m. until 3 p.m. every weekday. Additionally, he touched on the new safety protocols implemented inside the office, explaining that the Board “certainly encourages” the public to wear masks inside the building until the mask mandate is lifted on April 9 and how there is a “restricted number of family members allowed inside of the office” until further notice.

Kirkland also shared that since the Electric Board shares a building with the Water Board, the latter will also be following these same protocols and times listed above in the building’s reopening process, and there will be a sign located outside the building reminding guests of these requests and schedule changes.
