Whitewater Extends State of Emergency
At the Whitewater Common Council meeting Tuesday night, Cameron Clapper and the board decided to extend Whitewater’s local state of emergency in relation to the COVID-19 pandemic until at least June 30. Around June 30, Whitewater’s state of emergency will be reevaluated. Clapper noted that part of the reason he wanted to keep the state of emergency longer is because not enough people have been able to receive a vaccine yet. Additionally, face coverings will be required in the city through June 30, and Common Council meetings will remain virtual for the time being.
