Winston County On List for Mask Mandate

As you are all aware Covid has been an ongoing problem with rise and fall in new cases everyday. At one point the entire state was under mandated protective measures that of course has been lifted some time now. The task force in Jackson and the Governor have monitored the rise in certain areas and added those restrictions back on a county by county basis. Today Winston County has made that list. As a reminder that mandates all persons SHALL wear a mask in public unless eating or drinking or one of the other exceptions listed in Executive Order 1527(attached below) allows otherwise. This will also limit inside gatherings to 10 people outside to 50 people where social distancing is not possible. This restriction does not apply to religious entities, students in classroom or voting precincts. This Order does not change the way restaurants are currently operating they are governed by an earlier order. The new Executive Order is not available yet as soon as it is I will make it available.

Thank You
