“Our citizens have been subject to the decisions of Jackson County when it has pertained to social distancing, wearing masks and capacity limits. Our citizens can make independent decisions to protect themselves and their families. We are at a point where vaccines are available to our eligible population, personal protection is easily available, and COVID testing is offered on a frequent basis,” said Mayor Baird.
