Mountain View Mayor Roger Gardner told White River Now this morning that the city and Stone County are faring well in light of the coronavirus pandemic.

“Right now, trash is still being picked up. Water’s still running. Sewer’s still flowing. All of our restaurants are still open, mostly, but of course, everybody’s just doing drive-thru or take-out,” the mayor told White River Now’s Gary Bridgman. “But, we’re holding our own, kind of watching what we’re doing, trying to keep everybody separated. Trying to keep my police department away from my streets department. And the water department from the streets department. And the streets department away from the sewer department, and just places like that.”

So far, there have been no cases of COVID-19 reported in Stone County.
