LOCAL GOVERNMENT

Lampasas County officials signed a resolution on Tuesday on behalf of their municipalities to “strongly encourage” the public to wear face coverings when inside a business.

It also includes wearing a mask at commercial entities “or other locations that involve close proximity with others.”

The resolution was signed by Lampasas County Judge Randall Hoyer, Lampasas Mayor Misti Talbert, Lometa Mayor Carlos Garcia and Kempner Mayor Keith Harvey.

Hoyer told the Herald that it is important for the public to know the resolution “is not a mandate but to strongly encourage county residents to wear masks” to reduce the risk of the coronavirus.
