INTRODUCTION

Based on updated guidance from the Center for Disease Control and Prevention (“CDC”) regarding indoor masking in communities with substantial or high virus transmission rates, effective January 10, 2022,​ face-coverings will be required in all City facilities. This Directive applies to employees, contractors, customers, or visitors to any City facility regardless of vaccination status. For the latest guidance from the CDC on face-coverings, please click here. 

FACE COVERING DEFINED

The CDC recommends wearing a face covering made of at least two layers or more of washable, breathable fabric. A mask that includes either (I) a filtering respirator such as an N95 or K95 or (ii) a mask meeting the new standards from the ASTM and NIOSH mask may also be used. 

 All masks and face coverings should fit snugly against the sides of your face and not have gaps.

ADMINISTRATIVE DIRECTIVE

All employees, regardless of vaccination status, are required to wear face-covering inside City facilities, City vehicles, or when acting within the scope of City employment unless otherwise excepted.

For employees working indoors, a face covering can be removed when the employee is in their specific work area (e.g., office). If another person enters the employee’s work area, a face-covering must be worn.

Employees working alone outside or who fall within one of the specific exceptions listed below do not have to wear a face-covering. Employees working outdoors should always have a face-covering on their person and must put a face-covering on when entering a City facility or when they come within 6 feet of another employee from a different household or member of the public.

Visitors, including contractors, vendors, and residents, regardless of their vaccination status, will be required to wear a face-covering when they are inside a City facility.

EXCEPTION

There are exceptions to this Administrative Directive for individuals with a medical condition, mental health condition, or disability that prevents wearing a face covering. If an employee or someone visiting a City facility has a medical condition, mental health condition, or disability and is unable to wear a face-covering, they can request a reasonable accommodation. The City has the sole authority to determine whether to grant or deny a reasonable accommodation. 

Other exceptions to wearing a mask include:

  • While actively eating or drinking, provided that the individual remains in place while eating or drinking;
  • While alone or only with other members of the same household in an office, room, cubicle, vehicle, or similar enclosure;
  • When engaging in work authorized by the City where wearing a face-covering would create a risk to the person related to their work, as determined by local, state, or federal regulators or workplace safety guidelines.
  • When needed to confirm a person’s identity;
  • While outdoors and maintaining a physical distance of at least six feet from any individual from a different household; and 
  • Children younger than two years old. 

As circumstances around the COVID-19 pandemic continue to evolve, City may amend or rescind this Administrative Directive in accordance with the latest public health orders.
