Re:  COVID-19 Resurgence Mitigation

Beginning Wednesday, November 4, our Governor has placed Region 2, which includes Woodford County, under new mitigation rules in order to curb the spread of COVID-19 in our communities.  These restrictions will be especially hard on our restaurants and bars.  While I understand the intent of the restrictions and the efforts to curb this virus, I also understand the needs of the business owners that will again be adversely impacted by these new regulations.  At our Village Board meeting on Monday, November 2, we discussed these issues and the Village’s response to this evolving situation.

The Village Board recognizes the contribution these businesses make to the community at large.  We understand that a community is made stronger by the combined efforts of our citizens, our faith communities, our schools and our businesses.  To that end, Village Board members agreed that we will not force any business to close in compliance to these new mitigation restrictions outlined in the Governor’s new orders at the present time.  Unless we are compelled to do so by a lawful order from a Woodford County official, all businesses are free to continue to operate under their existing permits. 

We ask that every business, but especially those that offer food and beverage service to the public, to be extremely diligent in sanitizing and cleaning the area vacated by a customer before another customer occupies that same space again.  You must be extremely mindful to keep the public safe in your business if you want to continue to remain in business.  Please demonstrate to us all that you are mindful of the hazards represented by this virus and that you and your staff are taking this situation seriously so that we all have confidence that our decision to patronize your business is a good one.

One day we will look back on these days and be thankful they are behind us.  One day we will return to business as usual hopefully without face masks.  We will get past this but it may still take a while.  The Village Board supports you and your efforts to improve the quality of life in Roanoke as you serve us all. 

For the Roanoke Village Board,

Michael J. Smith

Village Board President
