Vaccine Clinics Move to Appointment-Based Model

Rowan County 0 0
In a letter released today from Public Health Director Nina Oliver, the Health Department will move to an appointment-based model for vaccines beginning with its first-dose clinic scheduled for Wednesday, January 27.  Vaccine allocations from the state remain low at this time, so Director Oliver urged eligible but healthy and willing citizens to hold off vying for the appointment slots until more are available, or for citizens who are Novant Health patients to focus attempts to seek a vaccination through their clinic.

CDBG & COVID-19

On September 11, 2020 the City was notified of a second allocation of CDBG-CV funds in the amount of $200,221. To deploy these funds, Council will have to adopt an amendment to the FY20-21 Annual Action Plan to describe, broadly speaking, how the funds will be utilized. City Council held a public hearing on December 1 and opened a public comment period that ended on December 25, 2020. A draft was presented at the January 5, 2021 City Council meeting, and a public comment period closed on January 12, 2021.

The City of Salisbury is currently accepting application for the CDBG grant program. All programs/agencies funded must be consistent with the objectives and requirements of the funding program. The primary objective of the program is the development of viable communities by the provision of decent housing, a suitable living environment, and expanded economic opportunities, principally for persons of low- and moderate-income. More information on the CDBG Program is available at: https://www.hudexchange.info/programs/cdbg-entitlement/.

The application deadline is Friday April, 9, 2021 at 5:00pm.

Travel Mask Mandate

https://www.cdc.gov/quarantine/masks/mask-travel-guidance.html

The Transit Security Administration issued a security directive effective on February 1, 2021 requiring the wearing of masks by travelers to prevent spread of the virus that causes COVID-19. Conveyance operators must also require all persons onboard to wear masks when boarding, disembarking, and for the duration of travel.

This Order must be followed by all passengers on public conveyances (e.g., airplanes, ships, ferries, trains, subways, buses, taxis, ride-shares) traveling into, within, or out of the United States as well as conveyance operators (e.g., crew, drivers, conductors, and other workers involved in the operation of conveyances) and operators of transportation hubs ( e.g., airports, bus or ferry terminals, train or subway stations, seaports, ports of entry) or any other area that provides transportation in the United States.

People must wear masks that cover both the mouth and nose when awaiting, boarding, traveling on, or disembarking public conveyances. People must also wear masks when entering or on the premises of a transportation hub in the United States. A copy of the Transportation Security Administration’s security directive can be found at www.tsa.gov
