On Wednesday night (June 17), city commissioners adopted a resolution requiring visitors entering City Hall or other city facilities to wear a face covering to help prevent the spread of COVID-19. For those who arrive at City Hall or a city facility without a face covering, a face mask will be provided. Children under two and persons with a medical condition who are unable to wear a face mask are exempt.
Commissioners also added guidance for the public and visitors to the city in the resolution regarding the use of a face mask/covering to help prevent the spread of COVID-19.
It is strongly recommended during the declared local state of emergency, that all persons in the city who are over the age of two and medically able to tolerate a face covering, cover their nose and mouth with a face covering when in public and unable to maintain a six-foot social distance. This recommendation applies whether in an indoor space (such as a store), or an outdoor public space where maintaining a six-foot social distance is not always possible.
