Mask Mandate For Greene County Extended To September 14

Greene County Mayor Kevin Morrison has extended the mask mandate for Greene County until September 14.

According to Executive Order Number 2, Morrison said that continued action is necessary due to the rate at which COVID-19 cases, hospitalizations and deaths in Greene County are rising, having no vaccine available and limited definitive treatment and many being asymptomatic transmitters of the virus.

The Executive Order requires that masks be worn by all residents, visitors and employees in Greene County.

Morrison said that the mandate is not enforceable as it does not have the weight of law and law enforcement is not going to act against those without masks.

Masks are not required to be worn by children under two or anyone who has underlying medical conditions with trouble breathing.

Morrison will hold a Coronavirus Town Hall on 99.5 FM/AM 1340 WGRV, Comcast channel 18 and wgrv.com on Friday at 1:00 PM. It will also be available at facebook.com/radiogreenevillenews.
