Masks are now required in Lauderdale COunty
Lauderdale County Mayor Maurice Gaines issued a Declaration of Public Health last night requiring masks to be worn in Lauderdale County.
Gaines said he made the decision after consulting with local mayors and Lauderdale County Superintendent Shawn Kimble.
Children under age 12 and those with health issues that make wearing a mask difficult are exempt from the requirement. People in churches also do not have to wear them unless required by their church. People outside do not have to wear them unless they are in a location in which social distancing cannot be maintained.
Anyone in a public facilities, especially government facilities, are required to wear masks, unless they have the health issues that are mentioned in Gaines’ order.
