Public Health Order Rescinded

At their March 11 meeting, the Grundy County Health Department Board voted to rescind the Public Health Order requiring masks, effective Monday, March 15. The wearing of face coverings is still strongly encouraged in all public places and groups where social distancing cannot be maintained as recommended by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention to mitigate the spread of COVID-19.

The Order's cancellation does not override the policies of other governing bodies or entities such as schools or businesses that may continue to require masks for attendance or service. Masks are still required for services at the Grundy County Health Department.
