While reading the Culpeper newspaper this [Wednesday] morning, I was startled to learn the Culpeper Board of Supervisors is allowing a Supervisor to participate remotely due to his concerns about COVID-19. I wonder why the Culpeper Supervisors can participate remotely while the Rappahannock Planning Commission cannot? Here is the report in the newspaper:

“The (Culpeper) Board of Supervisors met physically on Tuesday (July 7)  for the first time since the March pandemic shutdown, but not in its usual location. The meeting was held in the large auditorium at Eastern View High School with members spaced apart on the stage, seated at individual round tables.

Stevensburg Supervisor Bill Chase attended the meeting via teleconference due to being in the high risk category for the novel coronavirus.”
