COVID 19 Business Closure Ordinance

A number of businesses in our community are facing a mandate to close their operations to the general public for more than a month in response to the COVID 19 pandemic, and many citizens have more questions than answers about the new city ordinance and the effects it will have.

City Manager Amy Leon says local law enforcement and city officials will be working to help educate the public about the business closure ordinance.

Leon says while the decision to close businesses was very difficult for the Yankton City Commission, it was needed in response to the COVID 19 pandemic.

Leon says more information on the coronavirus can be found on the city of Yankton website.
