Audrain County Health Department Issues Mask Advisory

A Mask Advisory is now issued by the Audrain County Health Department.

The goal, according to the release from the agency, is to stem the rising number of COVID-19 cases in the county.

CEO Craig Brace stresses that it is not a mask mandate, but is following public health guidelines.

Audrain County Health Department Board of Health Chair Dr. Kathleen Weaver says that although a vaccine is near, Audrain County residents shouldn’t let their guard down in the upcoming months.
