Scott County Judge Issues Health Declaration


On Monday, March 30, Scott County Judge James Forbes issued a “Health Declaration.”

“This does not mean we have a positive case in Scott County,” stated Forbes. “As of March 30, we still have 0 positive cases. This proclamation will allow the county to receive state and federal assistance if the state proclaims and is approved at the federal level. If there is a state declaration for Covid-19 we will inform you what individual assistance will be available by state and federal government. Let’s not get lazy or complacent and forget our biggest defense is being proactive. Keep taking all those recommended precautions from the Arkansas Health Department and the CDC. Wash hands for a minimum of 20 seconds, don’t touch your face, cover your mouth when you cough, proactive social distancing, and stay at home if you can. I know this is hard but when you feel the need to get out do this in a responsible manner. Dining in has been prohibited, please don’t risk not complying. If you are ordering carry out, don’t congregate outside, use social distancing. Let’s all work together to be safe. Continue to pray for our county and all those who have been affected by this virus. Have faith in the good Lord and He will get us through this.”
