Residents and visitors with questions about Pinellas County’s emergency face covering ordinance can call the County Information Center (CIC) at (727) 464-4333, Monday through Saturday, from 9 a.m. until noon.
Faced with an alarming surge in COVID-19 cases, the Pinellas County Board of County Commissioners on Tuesday passed an emergency ordinance requiring that citizens wear face coverings in most indoor public places, and restaurants and bars to implement new safety and anti-crowding measures. The ordinance passed 6-1, with Commissioner Kathleen Peters dissenting.
FREE MASKS are available at the Dunedin Library and the Dunedin Chamber of Commerce.
The countywide ordinance takes effect Wednesday, June 24, at 5 p.m., and will remain in effect through the duration of Pinellas County’s State of Local Emergency. The Board extended that declaration through July 3 and can continue to renew it on a weekly basis.
The ordinance defines a face covering as a material that covers the nose and mouth and remains affixed or a face shield. A cloth face covering, or mask, may be factory-made or sewn by hand and can be improvised from clothing or other household fabric items.
• Citizens must wear a face covering while in most indoor public places within Pinellas County, although the Board provided several exceptions. Among them:
o The mandate cannot conflict with the Americans with Disabilities Act.
o It does not apply if a person is strictly adhering to social distancing and there are 10 or fewer people in the location who are also maintaining social distancing.
o It does not apply to governmental entities such as schools, courthouses or city halls, although those entities are encouraged to develop procedures to protect employees and the public.
o If a person is under age 18, that person’s use of a face covering is left to the discretion of that person’s parent, guardian or an accompanying adult.
o Religious rituals such as various forms of singing are permitted provided that social distancing is strictly maintained.
o Exercising while social distancing, such as in a gym, is permitted without a face covering.
• Restaurant and bar staff must wear a face covering while on duty and while directly or indirectly preparing food or beverage, or serving food or beverage, or having customer contact, regardless of where the food or beverage is being prepared or whether the customers are inside or outside. Customers can remove their face coverings while dining or consuming a beverage when seated and social distancing.
• Restaurants and bars must position chairs and tables so that parties of one or more are separated by six feet and patrons are not standing at the bar or congregating in any area.
• Retail employees must wear face coverings unless working in an area of the business that is not open to the customers and has social distancing measures in place.
The City of Dunedin's highest priority is the safety of our residents, visitors and employees. Following the guidance of local authorities, the Center for Disease Control and Prevention and the Department of Health will help ensure the safety of all of us in order to help prevent the spread of COVID-19.
