Chairwoman Cupid Extends Declaration of Emergency 2nd Time
Cobb County Board of Commissioners Chairwoman Lisa Cupid signed a second extension to the Declaration of Emergency concerning the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic. The initial extension was expected to expire on February 19 but has been extended another 30 days "unless terminated sooner in light of data reflecting a sufficient degree of reduced transmission. "
The declaration allows the continued use of the county's emergency operations plan, the use of virtual meetings when necessary, and "encourages all Cobb County citizens to (1) get vaccinated; (2) wear a mask in public indoor places if unvaccinated; and (3) avoid crowds and gatherings if sick."
Despite the extension, Board of Commissioners meetings held the week of February 21st are expected to happen in-person but with mask and social-distancing requirements in place.
