Latest Information on Coronavirus (COVID-19)

Orange City Emergency Ordinance 647, reenacting the requirements for face coverings in indoor locations in order to control the spread of Covid-19, has been eliminated by Governor DeSantis (Executive Orders 21-101 and 21-102) and is no longer in effect.  

However, the City encourages City employees and the public visiting City properties to comply with CDC guidelines.

 The City of Orange City’s highest priority has been the health and safety of our residents and staff. Protective measures have been installed to ensure we can operate within CDC recommended guidelines. We respectfully request that you do not enter City Hall if you are not feeling well. Please call (386) 775-5400 for more information.

Can a business require the use of facial coverings inside its establishment?

Yes, private businesses may require facial coverings and social distancing.  The State Executive Order does not prohibit a private business from requiring these practices.
