Special BOCC meeting on Feb. 8

On Tuesday, Feb. 8, the Board of County Commissioners will convene for a special meeting. The purpose of the meeting is to receive a public health update on the latest COVID-19 transmission levels in the community and in the workforce and discuss whether BOCC meetings should remain virtual or return to in person. 

The BOCC, along with other Johnson County boards and commissions, have been meeting virtually since Jan. 13, due to the high incidence rate related to the surge in Omicron cases. At the Jan. 13 meeting, the board passed a resolution to continue virtual board meetings through Feb. 17, with the caveat that should transmission levels improve, the resolution was subject to change. The resolution included all public meetings for county agencies, commissions, boards and other appointed bodies.

The BOCC meeting on Feb. 10 will be available live on our website and Johnson County’s YouTube channel

Johnson County continues to closely monitor vaccination rates among residents, hospital capacity, along with the COVID-19 incidence rate and percent positivity. As of today, Johnson County has an incidence rate of 823 (on Jan. 11, it was 1,585) new cases per 100,000, and a percent positivity rate of 18.8% (on Jan. 11, it was 30.3%).
