COVINGTON, Ga. - The Covington/Newton County Welcome Center is temporarily closed after extensive storm damage left the building in need of new flooring and roofing. 

"It was very unexpected," Jenny McDonald, director of tourism and marketing for the Covington/Newton County Chamber of Commerce, said. "It has been crippling to getting visitors the information they need."

Main Street Manager Lauren Singleton said the construction repairs are expected to take around two weeks. 

Anyone seeking tourism information can still visit the chamber office simply be entering through the Washington Street side.
