SHELBY COUNTY HEALTH ORDER No. 25 RELEASED
The Shelby County Health Department issued Health Order No. 25 effective August 31 to September 30, 2021, unless amended further. It renews the provisions of the Second Amended Health Order No. 24:
Requires masks in all indoor settings that are open to the public regardless of whether you are vaccinated; and,
Highly recommends masks in other circumstances that conform with CDC guidance for areas with high transmission rates (i.e., Shelby County).
Explains the difference between a "third dose" for those with immunocompromised conditions and a "booster" for those who are fully vaccinated. A "third dose" is available and recommended now for people with immunocompromised conditions. A "booster" dose is likely to become available this fall.
Strongly encourages employers to require Covid-19 vaccinations or regular Covid-19 testing for all unvaccinated employees, including those who are asymptomatic.

The new building has just completed building inspections and will be open to the public the week of September 19th.
