One thought on “Citrus County Commission declares local state of emergency”

  1. Why is the Citrus County EOC not providing comprehensive information concerning county activities in response to the Covid-19 health emergency? Especially since the BOCC issued a state of emergency, information in a one stop shopping location where residents generally visit during a natural disaster would be helpful to residents.
