Governor Evers Emergency Order No. 1 Relating to Requiring Face Coverings 9/22/2020 / Face Covering FAQ

July 6, 2020 - The Franklin Health Department is proud to have had the opportunity to work with so many local businesses in every sector of our community to put COVID-19 safety plans in place to protect workers, patrons, and the general public.  The hard work and dedication of these businesses and our residents have allowed us to begin to enjoy some of the activites we missed earlier this year.  However, with an increase in opportunities outside the home comes an increase in the risk for contracting and transmitting COVID-19.  In many areas of the country and our own State the numbers of those testing positive for COVID-19 have begun to trend upwards.  Unfortunately, we are now starting to see this trend creep into Franklin as well proving that COVID-19 is still very present in our area.  It is even more important than ever that we all play our role in preventing the spread of COVID-19.  Read more.  

We encourage business owners to consult the Safe Opening Capacity Guideline to prevent future spread of COVID-19 cases.
