    1. Guidance on booster doses that are now available to certain groups of people;
    2. Update on a recent court order requiring the Department to enforce its indoor mask requirement;
    3. Notice of a possible new emergency temporary standard from OSHA regarding vaccines and employers with 100 or more employees; and,
    4. Announcement from Pfizer that it is seeking approval for use of its COVID-19 vaccine for children 5 years and older.
  3. Requirement that businesses and schools report to the Department within 24 hours any employee, student, worker, or contractor who has tested positive or who had contact with a person who tested positive.
  4. Requirement that businesses and schools post “mask required” signs at entrances to provide notice to employees, students, and visitors that masks are required in public, indoor areas.

ELLENDALE PARK ADA RESTROOMS COMPLETED!

The construction of the new restroom building at Ellendale Park has been completed providing residents with a new ADA-compliant facility thanks in large part to a Community Development Block Grant (CDBG) from Shelby County. The new building is fully functional and is now open to the public.

WALKING PATHS: BLUE LAGOON, DIXON BREWER, FREEMAN SMITH, FLETCHER CREEK, W.J. FREEMAN

You may have noticed that sections of the above parks' walking paths have exposed gravel. Our Parks Maintenance Crews have been preparing these sections for asphalt resurfacing. Dixon Brewer was completed on Friday, 9/10 but wet weather and supply chain delays have delayed work on the remaining paths. Work on the remaining paths should resume in mid-October.
