Hopefully our county leaders are mitigating this pandemic the right way. Our public servants need to be protected as well. The Jail should have an isolation pod to protect the jail population from those arrested. All new inmates should be isolated for 14 days or until they bond out as a precaution. All jail staff should be afforded N95 masks as a permanent part of their uniform. Our police officers and Fire Personnel should be wearing these masks as well. I'm sure we have business in Henry County that can help make masks to protect our public servants. I'm hopeful that are leaders are thinking ahead to not only stop the spread but to protect our public servants.
