Health Officials in Marshall County Will Enforce State’s Mask Mandate

After recent COVID-19 deaths, and a rise in positive cases, health department officials in Marshal County will enforce Governor Andy Beshear’s Kentucky state mask mandate. Officials say they want to collaborate with everyone and they want to partner with residents to ensure they are doing everything they can to stop this. Health officials say they will take immediate action on people and businesses that are not properly enforcing the governor’s orders. Officials also say the last couple of weeks, there was a public gathering of people that were not wearing a mask or face coverings and many of them tested positive for the coronavirus. Officials say it was the health department’s contact tracing that lead officials back to the social gathering and the root of the recent problem. Officials say anyone who violates the executive order is subject to citations and a fine from $50 to $100. Also, businesses are subject to closure.
