Douglas County Commissioners adopt Free to Choose Resolution

Posted on May 12, 2021 2021Public Health


Free to Choose Resolution

At their May 11, 2021, Business Meeting, the Board of Douglas County Commissioners passed a resolution Declaring that Douglas County Residents are Free to Choose How to Protect Their Lives and Livelihoods From COVID-19.

In summary, the resolution states that the Board is opposed to any ongoing mask mandate, requiring proof of vaccination, and any other related restrictions that potentially disenfranchise local citizens of the right to make their own health care choices for themselves and move freely within society.

Commissioners Abe Laydon and George Teal voted in favor of the resolution, while Commissioner Lora Thomas voted against.
