Covey Murray gave a report to the Commissioners, as of yesterday we have 22 new cases, totaling 624 active and 80 deaths. Last week, we had 67 new cases, 652 active and 74 deaths. We are dropping on new cases, but the deaths have risen. Warner stated over one month time period, we have gone from mid-300's in cases to mid-600's in cases, it has doubled in a month. We certainly are not going in the right direction; with this I do not see why we would change what we have in place. Warner asked if there was an update on the vaccinations, Murray stated today the Health Department will continue the 65 plus, at the church. The first responders will receive their second vaccination in 8 days, I have not received all the information yet. Warner stated he has spoken to the Health Department with the concerns of the elderly not having internet or capability of signing up on the portal. They have stated to direct them to dialing 211, however this has crippled the 211 system with calls. There definitely are some issues with the roll out of the vaccines and the process that needs to be addressed by the State. We have people coming here from a 100-mile radius receiving shots, when our own community members cannot receive one. I think it needs to be your community first and if there are any vaccines left over, then you can see who needs one outside of the community. Murray stated he agrees. Vote as follows: Stephens - No, Warner - Aye, Smith - Aye.

Public Comment: NONE

Adjournment: Motion was made by Stephens and seconded by Smith at 9:59 a.m. to adjourn and meet again 1-25-21. Vote as follows: Stephens - Aye, Warner - Aye, Smith - Aye.
