(Park Hills) St. Francois County Health Department Director Amber Elliot is stepping down from her position effective November 20th. Elliot cited the threatening, intimidating and hateful comments she received from the public as part of the reason she resigned. But she says she’s also received a tremendous outpouring of support.
Elliot says she realized this reaction to COVID-19 is happening to health directors everywhere, not just in St. Francois County.
There’s no word yet as to who the new health director will be.
