After more than two and a half hours of discussion, questions and comments, from people from all around Harrison County, and beyond these borders, as well as the Harrison County Board of Health, a vote was taken on the proposed document regarding face coverings.
The Board of Health unanimously decided to pass the resolution, which is a "resolution to approve the Harrison County Board of Health face covering regulation."
Prior to the vote, two additions were made to the resolution. The first was to include language about how the document will be reviewed and reapproved by the Harrison County Board of Health and Harrison County Board of Supervisors every 30 days.
Also, language was included to spell out measurable goals that the Board of Health and Board of Supervisors can look at to decide if the mandate will be lifted.
It was decided that the measurable goal would be the following: The positivity rate must remain under 10 percent for 14 consecutive days. Then, the Board of Health and Board of Supervisors will discuss the idea of lifting the mandate.
This resolution will now be presented to the Harrison County Board of Supervisors at their meeting on October 29. The discussion will begin at 11 a.m.
