The ongoing surge in COVID-19 cases this week has prompted Tuolumne County to require facial coverings be worn again in all of its government buildings, regardless of vaccination status.
Effective Thursday, county buildings have signs stating, “Face Coverings Required Regardless of Vaccination Status,” according to a news release.
Meetings of the county Board of Supervisors will remain open to the public, but masks will be required for all in attendance. People can also continue to share public comments remotely by calling (209) 533-6581.
Public comment will open and close individually for each item on the meeting agenda when the board clerk reads the item. Each speaker will be limited to three minutes as usual.
The board chair will ask members of the public who are physically present to make comments first before asking if anyone is in the phone queue to comment.
County administrative staff said the public will not have access for public comments through three different platforms: the Tuolumne County website www.tuolumnecounty.ca.gov/745/Board-Meetings; Zoom Webinar via computer at https://zoom.us/j/98737385155; and Call in at: (1) (669) 900-9128 with Webinar ID: 987 3738 5155.
