(Farmington) A special meeting of the St. Francois County Health Department Board of Trustees takes place Tuesday afternoon at the Farmington Centene Center.
The board will be voting on a countywide mask mandate after cases of Covid-19 continue to skyrocket, along with six deaths in the county because of the virus.
Amber Elliot is the director of the county health department.
We asked why they are allowing the public to chime in at all because it is a proven scientific fact that masks worn while in public places do help slow the spread of the virus.
Elliot says if the board of trustees decide to approve a countywide mask mandate, it will then become official.
Tuesday afternoon’s special meeting of the St. Francois County Health Department Board of Trustees is open to the public and will start at 4 o’clock at the Farmington Centene Center.
Per the Centene Center’s regulations, if you plan to attend this meeting, you will have to wear a mask and practice social distancing.
