Everyone Entering Health Department required to wear masksPosted 07/30/21
MARSHALL COUNTY HEALTH DEPARTMENT ANNOUNCES ALL PERSONS
ENTERING THE HEALTH DEPARTMENT WILL BE REQUIRED TO WEAR A MASK
Due to recently updated CDC guidance, everyone age 2 and older entering the Health Department will be required to wear a mask beginning today. This includes those who have been fully vaccinated.
The new guidance from the CDC recommends everyone “wear a mask indoors in public if you are in an area of substantial or high transmission,” including those who are fully vaccinated. At the current time, Marshall County is listed as an area of HIGH transmission. The current county view for transmission levels can be found at https://covid.cdc.gov/covid-data-tracker/#county-view.
In addition, the Health Department is recommending everyone wear a mask when indoors in public due to the elevated level of transmission currently within the county. We remind everyone that individual businesses can require those entering their business to wear a mask if the business owner choses to require it.
