Dear Wayne County Residents;

As the Wayne County Commission we have the utmost concern for our communities Health and Safety. We have taken an oath to the US Constitution, which is the protection of the health and welfare of our citizens.

We are currently in daily contact with our state, federal and local health professionals regarding COVID – 19. We are relying on our state and local health officials for guidance during this critical and challenging time in our history.

Although the possibility does exist that the COVID – 19 may be active in our county, at this time there are no confirmed cases in Wayne County, and it is the sincere desire of the Wayne County Commission to ensure that fact remains so. The best we as a community can do is follow the guidance of social distancing and good hygiene practices.

At this point as the Wayne County Commission we have no plans for enacting any additional unilateral health orders. We will continue to follow the guidance and direction of those who are educated and trained to handle these situations.

A well thought out approach to COVID – 19 is critical at this time. A measured approach is a necessity. We are asking that everyone follow the Governors Stay Home / Stay Safe Directive the guidance of our federal, state and local health departments. 

Please take personal responsibility for yourselves and loved ones.

Stay Home / Stay Safe.

Sincerely the Wayne County Commissioners

Stanley W. Wood – Commission Chair

Dennis Blackburn – Commissioner

Roger Brian – Commissioner
