Encouraging Residents and Visitors to Wear Face Coverings in Public (No Mandate)

The Public Health Director did not recommend mandating face coverings, but encouraged citizens to wear face coverings in public places to help reduce the spread of COVID-19, individuals who are not symptomatic can still spread the disease so it is important to wear a mask to help protect fellow citizens.
