In a desire to align with Governor Kate Brown’s Executive Order 21-15, which rescinds remaining COVID-19 restrictions, On July 6, 2021 Benton County will ratify and adopt a new resolution that encourages people to wear masks in indoor settings and crowded outdoor settings due to the large number of people not yet vaccinated against COVID-19 and the ongoing monitoring of COVID-19 variants.

The resolution also announces that individuals and members of the public are no longer required to wear face coverings in County facilities.

Board of Commissioner meetings and advisory committee meetings remain open to the public and are available online through GoToMeeting.
