The Shelby County Health Department issued Health Directive No. 23 on July 8, 2021 and will be effective from July 10 - August 7, 2021. Key changes in Health Directive No. 23 include:

  • It removes recommendations about cleaning drinking fountains so that there is no confusion about whether drinking fountains may be opened. They can be.
  • It removes recommendations about using plexiglass barriers.

The text of Health Directive No. 23 is available here:

Please note that the federal mandate on public transportation is still in effect and that by executive order, county buildings that house people involuntarily will continue to require masks.

At this time, face masks are no longer required for patrons or employees at any of our facilities or parks. Please continue to follow updates through this page and our Department’s other social media outlets for the latest information.

The restroom building at Ellendale Park is being replaced this year with a new ADA-compliant facility thanks in large part to a Community Development Block Grant (CDBG) from Shelby County. The foundation and masonry of the new structure has recently been completed and the framing is well underway underway. The new building is on track to be completed by early to mid-August 2021.
