RE: Governor Kelly’s announcement of masks in public

 

It has been a recommendation in Phillips County all along to wear masks in public where social distancing is not likely to happen.  It is not the intention of the County to do anything different than what we are currently doing which was outlined in the Phillips County’s Reopen Plan.  We continue to recommend using social distancing, wearing masks in public where social distancing is not likely, using good hygiene practices, limiting travel to essential needs, not traveling to hotspots and staying home if you are feeling ill or have a fever of greater than 100.4 degrees Fahrenheit.

Again, please be patient and understanding with businesses as well as individuals.  Not everyone has the same viewpoints as it pertains to COVID.  Please choose to do what you feel is in your best interest and allow others to do the same for themselves.
