Public Health Order
The Grundy County Health Department and Grundy County Health Officer Elizabeth Gibson have issued a Public Health Order effective Friday, December 11.
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.
"The intent of this order is to work with local businesses, organizations, and individuals to create safer environments for all residents and visitors. We hope the people of Grundy County will support our healthcare providers, schools, and businesses by increasing their personal vigilance and wearing masks when they are around others. Widespread mask usage is proven to reduce the spread of COVID-19."
