On 11/12, the Lafayette County Board of Trustees voted unanimously to reinstate a mask order for Lafayette County.  A meeting was held Monday 11/16 to announce the order and was attended by city and county officials and the press. 


The mask order is very similar to the previous one issued in August.  Some dates and statistics have changed, and per discussion  and Board vote during Monday's meeting the order will now extend to school classrooms but other activities will still follow school policy.  A copy of the order is attached and it is set to take effect Thursday, November 19 and will be in place until further notice.
