Douglas County Commissioners

The Board of Douglas County Commissioners, George Teal, Lora Thomas, and Abe Laydon, listen to citizen comment at their April 13, 2021 Business Meeting.

Douglas County Board of County Commissioners voted unanimously to pull out of Tri-County Health Department's public health order Tuesday and will allow restaurants to operate at 100% capacity beginning Friday.

"We trust our citizens and businesses to think and act for themselves to protect their lives and livelihoods," the commissioners wrote in a statement.

"Our Board will remain nimble and continue to monitor COVID-19 data trends daily, with the intent to collaborate with the State and Tri-County Health Department on prudent, science-based responses to those trends which best serve our citizens."
