During their regular meeting March 1, 2022, the Liberty County Board of Commissioners voted to lift the local state of emergency in response to COVID-19 which was enacted January 17, 2022. This decision was based on the substantial changes in the transmission rate index in association with a CDC county classification as “low.”
The cessation of the Emergency Order removes the mandatory masking requirement and temperature checks in county buildings, removes occupancy restrictions in rental facilities, removes internal policies established for employees established in conjunction with the order, and removes restrictions on attendance at public meetings of the Board.
The Board encourages all citizens and employees to continue vaccination efforts and the practice of clean hygiene protocols. They will continue to monitor COVID -19 activities and other potential public risk threats and make decisions to protect the health and safety of the citizens.
