Glacier County Clerk and Recorder/Election Administrator Mandi Bird Kennerly issued this statement on Tuesday, Nov. 3:
Glacier County Health Director, Jenny Krapf, contacted me on Friday, October 30, 2020, and advised me that I had been listed as a close contact of a person who tested positive for COVID-19 and therefore would have to quarantine until November 11, 2020. I remain symptom free and understand that this is simply a necessary precaution.
As the Elected Clerk & Recorder/Election Administrator, I am devastated that I cannot be in the office on this important day. I have great faith in my Deputy Assistant Election Administrator, Crystal Cole, and the rest of my staff, and know that they are fully capable of administering this election. As always, I am available to my staff by telephone.
