Douglas County cites Tri-County Health executive session in seeking to invalidate school mask rules

Colorado Community Media: Douglas County commissioners are seeking to overturn the Tri-County Health Department’s recently-approved school mask rules by having their attorney raise objections about how the health agency approved the mandate.

Commissioners unanimously agreed on Aug. 23 to have their lawyer communicate with the health agency regarding the Aug. 17 meeting of Tri-County’s board where the vote on the COVID-safety order took place. 

Tri-County is the public health authority for Douglas, Adams and Arapahoe counties.

“The process will be initiating a complaint by communicating with Tri-County Board of Health our objection to their conduct of their meeting and then directing legal staff to be prepared to follow along with the process to invalidate the public health order issued last week,” Commissioner George Teal said during a commissioner work session.
