(Editor’s note: This is direct copy of the order. An updated story will be uploaded in the near future.)

The Crawford County Commission approved an order limiting public gatherings and access to businesses on Tuesday morning.

The following actions will be officially implemented by the Crawford County Board of Health and the Crawford County Public Health Officer and will be in effect at noon on Wednesday.

All large public gatherings of people in the county are prohibited unless otherwise ordered by the Board of Public Health or by the local health officer. Large public gatherings are those with more than ten people in attendance or anticipated to attend, both indoor and outdoor, except for essential businesses. A “gathering” does not include normal operations at spaces where persons may be in transit or coming or going individually or in groups of less than ten persons.

For purposes of this order, all first responders, public health, emergency management personnel, emergency dispatchers, court personnel, and law enforcement personnel, are categorically exempt from this order. Further, nothing in this order shall prohibit any individual from performing or accessing essential governmental functions, provided said individuals perform their duties following the guidance of the local health officer or delegated public health personnel. Essential governmental functions means all services needed to ensure the continuing operation of the government agencies and provide for the health, safety and welfare of the public, including judicial functions. All essential governmental functions shall be performed in compliance with social distancing requirements to the extent possible.

Crawford County is also restricting or prohibiting business activities for all nonessential businesses and is making recommendations for essential business functions as follows:

Essential Businesses

The following have been determined to be “essential business” functions for Crawford County:

Grocery stores will be allowed to remain open to the public for business to supply needed food and supplies to the citizens of Crawford County. It is recommended that these stores take precautions to reduce in-person contacts as much as possible, maintain social distancing (6 foot or more) when practical, and consider using curbside service whenever possible.

Convenient Stores/Gas Stations will also remain open to the public while taking precautions to reduce in-person contacts as much as possible, maintain social distancing (6 foot or more) when practical, and shall eliminate gathering places within the store to prevent social grouping activities.

Funeral Homes will be allowed to remain open but efforts should be made to reduce numbers (family only gatherings recommended) and shall work to limit crowds and shall strive to maintain the recommended social distancing as described above.

Healthcare Facilities and Providers/Veterinary Clinics will remain open and use social distancing and other techniques as applicable to help prevent the virus spread. Providers may want to have patients/customers stay in cars until their turn to avoid waiting area congestion and issues with maintaining social distancing.

Utility Providers will be allowed to remain open. It is recommended that providers take steps to limit worker-to-worker interactions to help reduce the chance for losing multiple workers and/or causing utility disruptions. Call for service to individual residences should be prescreened prior to entering those locations.

Banks and Pharmacies will be allowed to remain open for business. Whenever possible, it is recommended to close lobbies and inside operations and use the drive-throughs to conduct necessary business. People who are allowed to come inside the business should be prescreened prior to allowing entry.

Child Care Facilities will be allowed to remain open as child care is a critical community service and support for families, especially during a disaster. Individual child care providers and Centers may close at their discretion. Child care providers are encouraged to prescreen children daily to reduce the possibility of an ill child attending childcare.
