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

REMINDER: At next tomorrow's (July 14th) Board of County Commissioners Meeting, the Commissioners are set to hear the COVID-19 Status Report and provide further direction as appropriate. This agenda item is set for no earlier that 1:00pm. The CCMS board is requesting that the County issue appropriate requirements for masks/face coverings in indoor, public spaces. We encourage all physicians to sign our physicians' petition to the Commissioners (another general petition, not specific to physicians, is also available), and for all concerned citizens to provide supporting comments for this meeting. We also invite you to share our informative Facebook posts.

All persons wishing to provide comments at the commission meeting must register prior to presentation of the item to be addressed. All registered speakers receive up to 3 minutes unless the time is adjusted by the chairman. Individuals who would like to participate remotely should register at https://zoom.us/webinar/register/WN_mOaMBIwQQgGoHoWFzi9wvQ. Participating remotely, live, is preferred however if you are unable to, you can also email/call your commissioners in advance.

If you are interested in providing comments, you can review the previous recommendations from the CCMS board to the Collier County Commissioners.
