Sheriff Eric Levett released the following statement today, April 4, regarding his illness:

“On April 1,2020 I released a statement notifying everyone that I had gone into a 14 day quarantine per my primary physician because I was not feeling well. During this time I also advised everyone that I had been tested for COVID-19 and that I would provide an update on my test results as soon as I received them. I received a call from the Georgia Department of Health in reference to my test results this afternoon and I was told that I have tested positive for the COVID-19 virus. Although this was not the news that I was expecting, it just further let me know how seriously we all need to take this epidemic and abide by the orders that have been put in place. I would like to take this time to thank everyone for the calls, texts, and prayers for me and my family as well as my staff. My ultimate goal right now is to continue to make sure that my staff is protected as best as we can protect them and that the county is taken care of. Throughout all of my illness I have continued to work from home and will continue to do what I have been called to do for this great county.”

    I am sorry to hear that he tested positive. My father also tested positive a few weeks ago. I am praying for him. God will see him through.
