WORCESTER, MA — The Worcester Family and Probate Court is closed after a probation officer tested positive for coronavirus, according to state officials.

The family and probate court is located in Worcester’s main court building at 225 Main St., but other courts in the building will remain open this week. The family court will reopen on Wednesday, according to officials.

Courthouses across the region have been closed in recent weeks due to coronavirus exposures. The Worcester Juvenile Court closed on Oct. 27 after a probation officer tested positive. Courts in Dudley, East Brookfield and Clinton have all also closed in recent weeks.

This week’s closure will allow the family and probate court to be disinfected, according to officials.
