The Yavapai County Board of Supervisors will return to in-person meetings Monday. The decision was made Friday morning. Board Chairman Craig Brown says because the county has seen such positive indications that the COVID-19 virus is on the decline, it was time to reopen the meetings to the general public. It’s not all back to normal however. He says “we will still require masks and physical distancing in County public buildings.” Brown adds, “Yavapai County must continue to do the things we know are succeeding in the fight against COVID. Washing your hands and staying home when you are sick, are the actions that will keep us in this positive trajectory.” Brown also encourages residents to get the COVID vaccine a soon as possible.
