Resolution passed in support of face coverings at indoor public places in Taney County

"The TCHD staff and board members have a responsibility to protect the well-being of Taney County businesses and preserve the local economy. Imploring the residents and visitors of Taney County to protect the public's health by wearing face coverings while in any indoor public space will decrease transmission rates and slow the spread of COVID-19 in Taney County."
The resolution would need approval from the Taney County Commission to become an order.
