Hillsborough County, Florida (January 27, 2022) – Hillsborough County’s local state of emergency enacted in response to the COVID-19 coronavirus pandemic is extended for a further seven days.
Hillsborough County Administrator Bonnie Wise today signed an extension to the declaration under authority authorized by the county’s Emergency Management Ordinance and County Board of Commissioners.
The extension will be in effect until February 3. A local state of emergency can only be in effect for seven days, unless canceled or extended. The declaration of emergency gives the county administrator and emergency officials the ability to quickly take certain actions to ensure the health, safety and well-being of the community, and provides a pathway for federal reimbursement of certain expenses, such as county COVID-19 vaccination efforts. .
Read the ordinance extending the local state of emergency.
