Where does the ordinance require face coverings to be worn?

This ordinance requires customers to wear a face covering inside retail establishments. By way of example, “retail” includes but is not limited to buildings or structures or a portion thereof, for the display and sale of commodities such as department stores, drug stores, convenience markets, retail or wholesale stores, grocery stores, home improvement stores, where such commodities are available for immediate purchase and removal from the premises. It does not include businesses that have incidental retail sales directly related to the services rendered by the business such as cosmetology, barbering and health and fitness facilities, unless the sector-specific guidance issued by the Governor’s Economic Reopening Taskforce for that industry require compliance with the “retail” guidance.  In addition, to avoid any uncertainty or doubt, it, this ordinance shall not apply to the food service industry (restaurants) or places of worship which are subject to the Governor’s emergency orders.
