Warren County Judge Executive encourages public to wear mask in public
WARREN COUNTY, Ky. (WBKO) -
Throughout the COVID-19 pandemic, Warren County Judge Executive Mike Buchanon has been vocal on his Facebook page about the importance of wearing a mask and social distancing.
“Now that we’re getting back to work and businesses are opening, it’s more important than ever to stay safe, so we can continue to work at our jobs, attend family gatherings, and resume our daily lives,” Buchanon said .
Lately, he has posted videos of himself wearing a mask, explaining the importance of protecting other people.
“I wear my mask to protect me, to protect you and protect the people I work with. Here at Warren County Government. The people who work for you. Please wear yours too,” Buchanon explained.
The videos came after Governor Andy Beshear signed an executive order making masks mandatory in public.
“The No. 1 thing a mask can do is protect the health and the life of yourself and those around you,” the Governor said. “It can make sure we don’t lose more people than we should, it can keep our cases down and it can help us to continue to reopen our economy.”
Buchanon also mentions the importance of re-opening the economy.
“We need to revive our economy and get back in full swing! Stay Safe!” said Buchanon in a Facebook post.
