Knox County Board of Health Voting to Extend Restrictions

COVID-19 vaccines will soon be distributed to those who qualify in Knox County. Last night during the Board of Health meeting, Health Department Director, Dr Martha Buchanan, reiterated the importance of taking precautions, even if you receive the vaccine.  The Board of Health voted to extend social gathering restrictions and curfews until at least January 21st.  Also during the meeting, board member Dr James Shamiyeh says even though he’s still concerned about the rising COVID case numbers in area hospitals, anyone needing medical treatment should not avoid the facilities. Board member, Dr. Marcy Souza, says due to the recent rise in COVID case numbers, she’s asking everyone to stay home for New Year’s Eve.
