The Harvey County Commission voted to move back to Phase Three of the Harvey County Health Modified Reopening Plan beginning Nov. 11. The Commission voted to approve the action at its Nov. 10 meeting.

Phase Three of the reopening plan prohibits mass gatherings of more than 45 people. The reopening plan can be found in full here.

The order will be in effect through Dec. 1, 2020.

"In recent weeks, we have precipitous spread of COVID-19 in Harvey County," said Dr. Doyle Detweiler, public health officer for Harvey County. "This continues to put tremendous strain on our medical community, not just in Harvey County but throughout our region. We urgently need our communities to make decisions to significantly reduce further spread of COVID-19."

The Commission previously implemented the Harvey County Health Reopening Plan on May 26. The county had remained in the Phase Out recommendation - which does not restrict mass gathering size - since June 17.

A local health order requiring individuals to wear a face mask over their nose and mouth in any indoor or outdoor public space where 6 feet of social distance cannot be maintained remains in effect until rescinded, superseded or amended. That order was approved Oct. 19.
