(Full Text Of The Executive Order)
AS OF FRIDAY, NOVEMBER 20TH, 2020 THE FOLLOWING APPLIES:
Except as otherwise provided in this Declaration all persons age seven years old and above who are present within the jurisdiction of the County of Livingston are required to wear a clean Face Covering or Mask any time they are, or will be, in contact with other people who are not household members. The requirement to wear a Face Covering or Mask shall go into effect on November 20, 2020. The Health Center and Public Officials will constantly monitor the situation and reevaluate at the beginning of the year.
Definition. As used in this declaration, a “Face Covering or Mask” means a covering made of cloth, fabric, or other soft or permeable material, without holes, that covers only the nose and mouth and surrounding areas of the lower face. Medical grade masks are not required; coverings may be fashioned from gators, bandanas or other materials. A covering that hides or obscures the wearer’s eyes or forehead is not a Face Mask. A Face Mask may be factory-made, or may be handmade and improvised from ordinary household materials.
Any time an employee or staff person is required to wear a Face Covering or Mask pursuant to this Declaration, the employer shall make face masks available in sufficient quantity to assure each employee can wear a clean Face Covering or Mask at all times.
All public facilities and businesses that are open to the public are required to post a sign at all entrances that face coverings or masks are required to be worn inside the facility or business.
