Face Covering Mandate back in Rutherford County

Rutherford County Mayor Bill Ketron announced Monday the Rutherford County Face Covering Order will be reinstated Wednesday at 11:59 p.m. due to a resurgence in COVID-19 cases.

According to county officials, local COVID-19 cases are 2.8 times higher than in September and the seven-day average positivity rate has also doubled since that time.

Governor Bill Lee has authorized county mayors to require face coverings through the end of October, however, that authority could be extended.

Mayor Ketron said the Rutherford County Face Covering Order will be in effect until further notice.

Stewarts Creek and Rockvale high schools in Rutherford County are temporarily closed and are virtual learning due to COVID-19 and this has ended their football seasons in all likelihood.
