Public Health Order
The Grundy County Health Department and Grundy County Health Officer Elizabeth Gibson have extended the Public Health Order for 60 days beginning February 12, 2021.
According to the Order:
Except as otherwise provided in this Public Health Order all persons age ten years old and above who are present within the jurisdiction of the County of Grundy are required to wear a clean Face Covering or Mask any time they are, or will be, in contact with other people who are not household members.
All public facilities and businesses that are open to the public shall post a sign at all entrances that face coverings or masks are required to be worn inside the facility or business.
The Order will be in place for the next 60 days and will be re-evaluated within the context of the COVID-19 situation.
“We are at a critical juncture: the numbers are improving and the vaccine is now available. But it is too soon to relax our vigilance, we must continue our precautions so we keep making forward progress. Mask usage has been proven to slow the spread of COVID-19. We are grateful to our local businesses, employers, churches, and other organizations for taking steps to improve the safety of their patrons, workers, and members, and doing all they can to make Grundy County a safer place to live, work, and visit.”
