Board of Douglas County Commissioners respond to approval of public health order

The Board of Douglas County Commissioners has directed County staff to draft a resolution to opt-out of the Tri-County Health Department public health order, adopted at the April 8 Board of Health meeting. The public health order extends the use of the state’s COVID-19 Dial system until May 16. The resolution to opt out will be considered at the Commissioners’ Tuesday, April 13 Business Meeting at 1:30 p.m.

Statement from the Board of Douglas County Commissioners:

“Douglas County will remain guided by accurate public health data, including high vaccination rates of vulnerable populations, coupled with low hospitalizations and deaths. These science-driven metrics balanced against job losses, business closures, and mental health consequences require that we exercise our local control authority on behalf of the people of Douglas County. We trust our citizens and businesses to think and act for themselves to protect their lives and livelihoods. In lieu of further orders, we will continue to encourage strong public health recommendations, good hygiene, and the choice to be vaccinated. Our Board will remain nimble and continue to monitor COVID-19 data trends daily, with the intent to collaborate with the State and Tri-County Health Department on prudent, science-based responses to those trends which best serve our citizens.”
