At tonight’s meeting, the Board approved Executive Order No 16, mandating face coverings at all indoor public spaces where social distancing is not possible.

”Every operator, employee, customer or patron, over the age of six (6), of a business establishment must wear a face mask or covering at all times while indoors at that business establishment unless he or she is able to engage in social distancing or unless wearing a face mask or covering significantly interferes with the provision or receipt of goods or services offered or received at that establishment (i.e. patrons at a restaurant, clients at a barber shop or hair salon, patients at a dentist’s office).”

The Order does provide exemptions for public safety and law enforcement personnel because their personal protective gear is governed by their agencies.

The Order goes into effect at 7:00 a.m. on Friday, July 3, 2020 and will remain in effect for 30 days.
