(Hillsboro) The joint mask order by the Jefferson County Health Department and the County Government has been in place for around two weeks. While the number of positive Covid-19 cases continues to climb, Health Department Director Kelley Vollmar says the results to see if the masking order is working, won’t be for some time.

The Jefferson County joint mask order remains in place until at least December 21st. It won’t be until that date, that the mask order will either be lifted or extended.
