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to control the spread of Covid-19, has been eliminated by Governor DeSantis (Executive Orders 21-101 and 21-102) and is no longer in effect.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.
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.
Orange City Council votes to pass Emergency Ordinance no. 632, to require face coverings, effective 12:01 a.m. on Tuesday, July 7. Read more here.
