Fairboard Meeting Agenda - July 28, 7:00 pm

Powder River County will be opening county buildings for use on 5-22-20

Please keep in mind to conduct your activities safely by following the recommendations that follow.

COVID-19 hasn’t changed. It is still a serious and dangerous pandemic. We are still living with threat of it in our community. As we move into the reopening phase, please do so responsibly. We encourage you to think carefully about your activity and whether you can meet the Governor’s guidelines.


Continue to practice good hygiene
   1. Wash your hands with soap and water or use hand sanitizer, especially after touching frequently used items or surfaces.
   2. Avoid touching your face.
   3. Sneeze or cough into a tissue, or the inside of your elbow.
   4. Disinfect frequently used items and surfaces as much as possible. o Strongly consider using non-medical face coverings while in public, especially in 
       circumstances that do not readily allow for appropriate physical distancing (e.g., grocery/retail stores, pharmacies, public transportation).

Allow for proper social distancing. Community members should not convene in groups of more than 10 unless a minimum spacing of 6 feet can be maintained.

This could include:
 1. A reduction in the occupancy capacity of the building or space
 2. A reduction in seating
 3. A reduction in the number of individuals invited to the activity
 4. Conducting the activity in shifts, where applicable

Vulnerable individuals should continue to follow the stay at home guidance.

Activities should be limited to participants and any necessary parent or guardian. No spectators or concessions.

Frequently touched or shared surfaces should be cleaned and sanitized frequently. Handwashing or hand sanitizer must be available. Where restrooms are provided, hand sinks with soap, water and paper towels must be provided. It is the responsibility of the organizer to provide these items and periodically clean frequently touched surfaces in the restroom.

Where food is served, products must be packaged or otherwise in a ‘grab and go’ form. No shared serving utensils or buffets should be allowed.

Individuals who are ill should not be permitted to participate or attend.

Travel from out- of-state should be limited to essential business.

All guidance is subject to change without notification
