County supervisors approve COVID-19 resolution

Posted: Sun, Sep 13, 2020 5:40 PM

Winneshiek County Supervisors have voted unanimously to approve the COVID-19 resolution approved by the County Board of Health.

The health board's resolution says, "The Winneshiek County Board of Health STRONGLY RECOMMENDS that all Winneshiek County residents and visitors wear a cloth face mask or face covering when in public and maintain a six-foot distance from others. The Winneshiek County Board of Health asks everyone to recognize and understand that wearing a face mask or face covering and physical distancing protects others."

The resolution, however, stops short of being a mask wearing mandate.  Nevertheless, supervisor Mark Kuhn called the statement "a strong recommendation."
