Local Henry County Resources
As of June 16, 2020, all Henry County restrictions will be lifted and the community will resume business as usual while adhering to the following recommendations:
Schools are encouraged to follow the recommendations of the Department of Education and Secondary Education (DESE) and Department of Health and Senior Services (DHSS)
Social distancing, hand washing, staying home when you are ill, reporting to your doctor if you experience symptoms, conduction daily cleaning of frequently used services, and covering your mouth when you sneeze should all still be practiced.
Avoid large, congested crowds. If you are not able to adhere to social distancing, take extra precautions to protect yourself and those around you.
When reopening the community, it is vital that it occurs with ultimate regard for maintaining life and reducing morbidity while balancing the vital need to restart the economy. It is also extremely important that this plan be reviewed and implemented by the leaders of Henry County so the same message is presented by all parties. The success of this plan is dependent on the adherence by the community members.
