Mayor Otis T. Wallace has issued an order urging residents to wear a mask or other personal protective equipment while out in public. This is an additional safety measure being implemented under the State of Emergency declared in response to the national and regional outbreak of COVID-19. Pursuant to recent guidelines from the Centers for Disease Control and prevention (CDC), masks of any kind are considered another important tool for residents to continue social distancing practices like staying home if they are able and keeping a distance of six feet between themselves and others while out in public. Please note that this does not impose any additional restrictions on which businesses with the City of Florida City may remain open for essential purposes.
