Facial Coverings in Public Places are Mandatory in the Florida Keys
JUNE 26, 2020 UPDATE:
The Key West City Commission on Friday unanimously approved an ordinance that mirrors the City’s emergency directive requiring masks in establishments and outdoors when social distancing is not possible. The ordinance gives an added level of enforcement to police and code to write civil citation for infractions. In addition, the ordinance addresses violations by businesses. It states that any business cited twice for the violation of the ordinance will be shut down for a minimum of 24 hours and subject to a full compliance review. A link to the ordinance is available below, with important details beginning on page 6 in Section 3.
Facial coverings over the nose and mouth must be worn in business establishments and other public settings where there is a roof overhead throughout the Florida Keys. The mandatory mask order applies to employees and customers. The City of Key West ordinance contains exceptions when face coverings may be removed including while seated to eat and drink in a restaurant or bar and while exercising in a gym if at least six feet away from other people, or outdoors. However, if you’re in a crowded area, even outside, and are unable to keep 6 feet between yourself and others it is requested that you please wear a mask.
A covering over the nose and mouth may include a face mask, homemade mask, or other cloth, silk, or linen covering, such as a scarf, bandana, handkerchief, or other similar cloth covering. Medical and surgical face masks, such as “N95” masks, should be reserved for health care personnel and other first responders with the greatest need for such personal protective equipment. Children 2 years old or younger are not required to wear a mask.
