The Town of Davidson Board of Commissioners met virtually tonight to discuss implementing an interim mask mandate until Mecklenburg County’s policy takes effect later this month on August 28, 2021. The board voted unanimously in favor of a temporary mandate for facial coverings in all public indoor settings that will take effect immediately as of Thursday, August 19, 2021 at 7:00 p.m. The town mandate will remain in effect until Mecklenburg County’s health directive supersedes it later next week, at which point the Town of Davidson’s mandate expires.
Davidson Mayor Rusty Knox notes, “it’s always been our priority to protect the health and safety of the Davidson community. Even though we are fortunate that Davidson has one of the lowest infection rates in Mecklenburg County and one of the highest vaccination rates, we know that masking helps to slow the spread of COVID-19, and we see no reason to delay implementing measures that Mecklenburg County Public Health feel are necessary to best protect the entire county.”

In accordance, the board will meet virtually for its next meeting on August 24, 2021, and video will be available on the town’s website and YouTube channel.
