The Marshall County Commission voted Wednesday to extend COVID-19 sick leave for all county employees, even those who may have used up their previous allotment. 

The commission voted to fund up to 40 hours of COVID-releted sick leave that can be used through Dec. 31. District 1 Commissioner Ronny Shumate said he’s had a few employees need more leave after having been out sick, even hospitalized, due to COVID-19.
