On Friday, June 26, in an emergency meeting called by City Manager John Regan, the City of St. Augustine City Commission passed a resolution mandating that face coverings be worn indoors and when social distancing is not possible.  Citing recent spikes in COVID-19 cases in St. Johns County and the community’s increasing demand for action by city leadership, Resolution 2020-22 passed unanimously.  City Manager John Regan also issued Administrative Order 2020-11 specifically authorizing the recommended requirements as set forth by the resolution.

The key points of the order mandate that all individuals shall wear face coverings when indoors and when social distancing is not possible.  Also, businesses are encouraged to prohibit entry of individuals not wearing face coverings.

The complete text including exceptions can be found on the city’s Coronavirus page

In addition, the city has created a window flyer for businesses to display in their establishments to aide with informing the public of the new policy.

Questions may be directed to the City Manager’s office at 904.825.1006, or the Communications Department at 904.825.1053.
