The Clark County Council has decided to keep its public meetings in a virtual format through the end of September as the delta variant fuels another spike in COVID-19 cases.

The council made the following cancellations to its meeting schedule for the next couple of weeks:

  • Sept. 1: No work sessions or council time.
  • Sept. 7: No council meeting.
  • Sept. 8: No Board of Health, work sessions, or council time.

The council will resume meetings the week of Sept. 13, with previously scheduled work sessions and council time on Sept. 15.

The council will reevaluate at the end of September and consider whether to open meetings to in-person attendance.

Council meeting agendas, participation instructions and a public comment form are on the county’s website at https://clark.wa.gov/councilors/clark-county-council-meetings.

County employees and visitors entering county buildings are subject to the statewide face-covering mandate, which requires everyone over the age of 5 to wear a mask regardless of vaccination status.

Residents can get up-to-date COVID-19 information including infection data and how to get vaccinated on the county’s website at https://clark.wa.gov/public-health/novel-coronavirus.
