Macon County is a host to several events this summer that will bring in people from out of county and perhaps out of state. It is vital to inform people not to attend if not feeling well. Event organizers should manage social distancing as best as possible; have hand hygiene available; and, encourage event staff and visitors to wear masks. If you plan to attend a summer event, practice social distancing and wear a face mask.
