Commissioner Mark Bennett says, “I’m really glad to see our risk level drop to this lowest level. Our businesses need this to happen, and need Baker County to stay at this level. Thank you for staying home if you’re sick, washing your hands, and taking steps to keep each other healthy. It has made a big difference, and it’s vital to protecting our community and staying open.”
