COVID-19 Updates & Petition / Board of County Commissioners Meeting Tomorrow
Dear Members,

Tomorrow (Tuesday), July 21 at 9am, the Collier County Commission will reconsider a mask mandate in indoor, public spaces at a special emergency meeting. Last week, the Commission failed to enact an emergency mask order. We encourage all interested in submitting virtual public comments live to the Commissioners to register ASAP online. You can review previous CCMS testimony for your reference. Not able to participate? Please email your commissioner.

We also encourage all physicians to sign our physicians' petition, and for the general public to sign this petition, both request the County to enact a mask mandate .

Help encourage your patients, family, and friends to follow important COVID-19 guidance, such as wearing masks, with CCMS graphics to use in your Facebook posts, newsletters, and more. We also invite you to share our informative Facebook posts.
