County Public Health Report ~ 7/20

Today’s Public Health briefing from Dr. Tom Locke addressed various concerns about the masking requirement, as well as interpretation of the impact of the most recent case count uptick both national and in smaller measure, in our county.

In the Emergency Management briefing, Director Willie Bence announced the upcoming potential difficulty in obtaining PPE, based on the recent national upswing in cases, and anticipation of receiving cloth masks to distribute, and a reminder to cover nostrils as well as mouth when wearing face coverings, as is now mandatory.
