Four members of the community were present at the Dallam County Commissioners’ meeting Monday morning to request Dallam County Judge Wes Ritchey sign a request for a waiver to the state mask-wearing rule. 

Only one representative of the group addressed the commissioners, and Ritchey said it is something he would consider in the future. 

“That’s something we’re going to look at every day in consultation with Dr. Matt Turner and Dr. Natalie Hobdy, the local health authorities,” Ritchey said.
