Jefferson County will require face coverings in most indoor public places beginning at 5 p.m. June 29 and lasting until the county health officer deems public safety no longer requires it in the fight against COVID-19.

Jefferson County Health Officer Dr. Mark Wilson announced the new order at a news conference today. Under the order, anyone over the age of 8 must wear a face-covering inside virtually all public places in the county as well as inside any public transportation or ride-share vehicles. Face coverings will be required in outdoor spaces where 10 or more are gathered and unable to maintain separation of at least 6 feet.

A few exceptions include houses of worship, schools, and daycare and child care facilities, which will have their own rules and guidelines.
