DMYC "I'm In" Georgia Safety Promise
MAYOR'S YOUTH COUNCIL PROUDLY SUPPORTS THE GEORGIA SAFETY PROMISE CAMPAIGN
Each year, the Douglas Mayor’s Youth Council is presented with opportunities for youth to become involved in social and political processes, so that they develop leadership skills, personal goals, and an understanding of government. Our 2020-2021 Youth Council quickly identified a need in Douglas and in Georgia - the need for youth and young adults to become educated and aware of the risks associated with COVID-19. The Douglas Mayor’s Youth Council has set a goal to promote COVID-19 awareness to young people, as well as adults. With this goal in mind, the Youth Council filmed a public service announcement promoting the Georgia Safety Promise Campaign. In addition to the video, the council has worked with Mayor Tony Paulk to create the “Mask Up” campaign to encourage COVID-19 safety guidelines to citizens in Douglas. Join our youth and say "I'm In" - make the Georgia Safety Promise - let's all do our part to stop the spread of COVID-19.

DOUGLAS MAYOR LAUNCHES MASK UP CAMPAIGN
In an effort to slow down the spread of COVID-19 in Douglas and Coffee County, City of Douglas Mayor Tony Paulk launched his “MASK UP” Douglas campaign on Monday, July 20, 2020. The campaign consists of highly recommending citizens wear facemasks and follow COVID-19 guidelines such as washing hands, sanitizing surfaces, social distancing, and actively help fight the spread of the coronavirus.
“We have to take some personal responsibility in slowing the spread of the virus in our community,” says Mayor Tony Paulk. “I don’t want to see our numbers continue to climb. It would be devastating for our city and our local economy, if we were to go through another shutdown.”
While Mayor Paulk has not initiated a city-wide mask mandate, he has asked all city owned offices to require employees and visitors to wear some type of face covering. Face coverings may include non-medical face masks, bandanas, scarves, or cloth. Utility customers that do not have face coverings can may payments online or payments can be placed in the drop box outside City Hall.
