Ionia County extends state of emergency due to COVID

County board also opposes community mental health redesign plans

The Ionia County Board of Commissioners have extended a local state of emergency due to increasing COVID cases until Dec. 31.

Board Chairman David Hodges declared a state of emergency for the county on Monday, but can only authorize it for seven days, according to the state’s Emergency Management Act. On Tuesday, at their regular meeting, commissioners voted to renew that declaration through the end of the year.
