During the Wayne County Board of Supervisor’s meeting held on October 19, Supervisor Don Seams discussed his desire to revisit the courthouse COVID-19 policy regarding time spent within the courthouse by the board. 

“I discussed it with Shelley [Public Health Administrator] and the way it states right now supervisors will be in one at a time and that’s kind of hard to for information to be exchanged,” said Seams. “I asked if we wore masks and kept six-feet separation just like everybody what she thought about that and she didn’t have a problem with it.”

“I guess it’s a matter of whether all three or even two can be in the courthouse at one time which has been an ongoing issue it seems for a long time,” said Auditor Michelle Dooley.

“I think we’re not supposed to do that,” said Supervisor Tom Swearingin. 

“You’re not supposed to make decisions,” said Seams. “I’m just tired of driving my pick-up here and seeing someone else already here.”

“I’ve got my set schedule of when I will be here,” added Swearingin.

Supervisor Dave Dotts and Swearingin felt the current system was working and it was decided to remain the same. 

The next BOS meeting will be held on Monday, November 2 at 9 a.m.
