Jefferson County OKs contract for sneeze guards

Posted

Jefferson County commissioners have agreed to spend nearly $58,000 on custom-made sneeze guards.

Commissioners voted unanimously last week on a $57,770 contract with Bear Wood Windows, Inc. for 55 plexiglass  sneeze guards for installation at public counters in county offices and at workstations for county employees.

The sneeze guards are needed to prevent the spread of COVID-19, and workers from the Lakewood-based company were expected to start installing the guards earlier this week.

Installation of all of the sneeze guards is expected to be finished by Monday, July 13.

Commissioners approved the contract with Bear Wood Windows at their meeting Monday, June 22.

County Administrator Philip Morley said the agreement actually includes more than just sneeze guards, but protective improvements that will isolate working spaces for county employees.

The plexiglass kits include table-top, cubical, and countertop styles of shields.

The guards will be installed in the treasurer’s office, assessor’s office, auditor’s office, district court, superior court clerk’s office, prosecutor’s office, juvenile services department, health department, sheriff’s office, jail booking area, and public works department.
