The Mecklenburg County Public Health Director reported that the number of Covid cases are trending in the right direction, including an increase in vaccinations. The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) has updated their guidelines stating that fully vaccinated individuals can safely do most activities without wearing a mask or the need to social distance from others. Governor Cooper’s latest Executive Order 215 has removed the indoor mask mandate for most settings, removed limits on mass gathering, and social distancing requirements. These changes are now in effect. Based on these updates, staff discussed with the board resuming in person meetings at Town Hall.
Town Clerk Betsy Shores shared information about technology advances in the board room including additional microphones and a switch from the camera view of the board room to show what is being projected on the presentation screen in the board room.
The board of commissioners agreed to resume in person meetings beginning June 8. This will also include the town advisory board meetings to resuming meeting in person in June.
