Effective Monday June 29, 2020 at 5 p.m., the City of Jacksonville adopted a mandatory mask requirement for public and indoor locations, and in other situations where individuals cannot socially distance.
Healthcare experts advise that masks and cloth face coverings that help slow the spread from individuals with COVID-19 to vulnerable pcopulations, including from those who are asymptomatic. We continue to urge everyone to practice personal responsibility and do their part to help stop the spread of this virus.
Emergency Executive Proclamation 2020-005 states that:
- Every person over the age of six (6) who is in a public space shall wear a face mask or covering when not able to engage in social distancing.
- Every operator, employee, customer or patron of a business establishment must wear a face mask or covering at all times while 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 operator and employees of a business establishment shall ensure that every individual in that establishment complies with this Proclamation.
- Public safety, fire, law enforcement, and other life safety personnel are exempted from this requirement, as their personal protective equipment requirements will be governed by their respective agencies.
- ADA Accomodation: When a customer of a business establishment asserts that he or she has a disability that prevents the individual from wearing a face mask or covering, the owner, manager, or employee of the business establishment may exclude the individual, even if they have a disability, as they pose a direct threat to the health and safety of employees and other customers, even if asymptomatic, and shall accommodate the disabled individual in a manner that does not fundamentally alter the operations of the business establishment nor jeopardize the health of that business's employees and other customers, such as providing curb service or delivery or other reasonable accommodation.
