Cherokee County Commissioners Move Meeting Because Of Mask Requirement

Jul 17, 2020

The Cherokee County Board of Commissioners have changed the location of its monthly meeting because of the new requirement that persons entering court facilities must wear a mask.

The board’s meetings usually take place at the Cherokee County Courthouse.

The July 20 meeting will be held at the Penland Senior Center in Murphy, located at 69 Alpine Street. The board says all future meetings will take place at the senior center while court facilities are under COVID-19 pandemic requirements. The meeting starts at 6:30 p.m. 

The emergency directive requiring masks at court facilities was issued by the Chief Justice of the Supreme Court on Thursday.
