What does Seneca County’s COVID Committee do?
That question will be answered in an updated mission, which will be authored by County Attorney David Ettman. That decision came out of last week’s meeting of the Board of Supervisors.
At issue was the mission and scope of responsibility that the COVID Committee carries. “The committee has been dealing with not only compliance with COVID regulations by local businesses, but with school testing and vaccine issues,” Enslow said. “What do we want the committee to handle and not handle?”
A number of supervisors noted that vaccine availability, mask requirements, and business complaints have all been brought up, and the COVID Committee has become the standard target for those questions. “We need to have open communication on all these issues,” Supervisor Cindy Lorenzetti said.
