[ARCHIVED] Joines Urges Use of Masks Indoors

Mayor Allen Joines released the following statement today urging city residents to take measures to protect themselves from becoming infected by the latest variant of the COVID-19 virus:

“Our community is experiencing a rise in the number of positive COVID cases. Our current daily case count is over 140 per day. As you may recall, our target is fewer than 10 cases per day.  

“Therefore, I am urging our citizens to take precautions to protect themselves and others by wearing a mask indoors. This is particularly important when you are in large groups or in a close setting. If two individuals are wearing a mask, there is less than a 3 percent chance of the virus being transmitted between those two individuals.

“I also urge any citizen who has not been vaccinated to do so as soon as possible and if vaccinated to get a booster shot.

“If we work together, we can contain the spread of the virus and prevent the adoption of more stringent requirements.”
