Kandiyohi County to review mask mandate for county buildings when it meets March 1
At its meeting on Tuesday, the Kandiyohi County Board will receive a COVID-19 situational update and review the mask mandate that requires mask wearing in public areas of county buildings.
WILLMAR — As promised when it put the mask mandate in place in January, the Kandiyohi County Board of Commissioners will review the order at Tuesday's meeting.
The meeting will start at 10 a.m. March 1 in the board room at the Kandiyohi County Health and Human Services building in Willmar.
The mask mandate , which requires everyone to wear a mask in the public areas of county buildings, such as lobbies, elevators and public meeting rooms, was approved when case counts were rising quickly in Kandiyohi County and CentraCare was urging area residents to do what they could to slow the spread.
Jennie Lippert, Health and Human Services director, will also be giving the commissioners a general update about the COVID-19 situation in the county.
Also on the County Board agenda are a donation from the Kandiyohi County Power Cooperative to the county Rescue Squad and the sheriff's search and rescue team; bid letting for public works maintenance work; background information on the Meeker County Cooperative and Vibrant broadband project; and continued discussion on the county's redistricting efforts.
Prior to the regular board meeting, the Health and Human Services Committee will meet at 9 a.m. in the same board room. On the agenda is a presentation on Community Corrections.
