County Executive Jimmy Haley and the Warren County Coronavirus Task Force issued a facemask mandate Thursday afternoon during a press conference.

Effective immediately, the executive order requires residents to wear a face covering while in public to mitigate the spread of COVID-19.

Haley acknowledged there is no way to enforce the measure, but requested residents to do the right thing and do their part to help our society.

"This is a gutsy thing to do for a politician, but it's the right thing to do," said Saint Thomas River Park CEO Dale Humphrey, a member of the task force.

Other members of the task force are Ben Newman, Bryan Denton, Tommy Myers, Andrea Fox, Preston Denney and Nolan Ming.
