Lisa PeacockThe Health Department of Northwest Michigan is charged with protecting the health of the people who live and work in Emmet, Charlevoix, Antrim and Otsego counties in conformance with Michigan’s Public Health Code.  While the health department’s vital work was taken for granted and largely unnoticed by many for decades, that changed in late August 2021, when a mask mandate was issued for K-12 schools in the four counties to address the continued health threat of COVID-19.  Health Officer Lisa Peacock, RN, MSN, will explain the mandate and give an update on current steps to keep us safe through a pandemic with a growing number of variants.

This program will be held via Zoom.  Attendance is free, however pre-registration is required at
