Boone County Extends Health Orders

Columbia/Boone County Public Health & Human Services is extending the current health order, including the Columbia and Boone County mask requirement, through December 22nd.

According to Director Stephanie Browning, the extension is due to the surge in numbers following Thanksgiving.

As of Wednesday, there were 157 hospitalized in Boone County with 46 in ICU and 20 on ventilators.
