Joint City & County Resolution on Citizens to Mask Up
Albany, GA – The Board of Commissioners adopted a joint resolution to encourage the citizens of Albany, Georgia, and Dougherty County to wear face masks in public during the COVID-19 Public Health Emergency and Recovery.
The City and Dougherty County recognize that it is critical to continue maintaining 6-feet social distancing to slow the spread of COVID-19. In addition to social distancing, using simple cloth face coverings, as recommended by CDC, can further aid in slowing the spread of the virus by reducing the chances of asymptomatic people transmitting the virus to others.
