During the Monday, July 20, York County Council meeting, York County Council adopted a Resolution encouraging the public to wear face coverings in public places and in certain circumstances to help prevent the spread of COVID-19.
In the best interest of public health, York County Council deems it important that we all work together to reduce risk of exposure to the Coronavirus. Based on recommendations from health experts, York County strongly urges individuals to wear face coverings in certain situations and locations while in public places and when social distancing cannot be achieved.
The adopted Resolution encourages face coverings for all patrons and employees of any retail establishment or food service establishment; as well as, for patrons and employees of all County owned facilities where social distancing is not possible.
