Face Coverings Mandated in Cutler Bay Grocery Stores, Restaurants and Pharmacies—Effective April 10
In order to protect the health, safety and welfare of the residents of Cutler Bay, Town Manager Rafael Casals signed Emergency Order 20-01 today, which requires all employees and customers of grocery stores, restaurants and pharmacies within Cutler Bay to wear a form of covering over their nose and mouth at all times inside those facilities. Additionally, all individuals providing delivery services must wear a form of covering over their nose and mouth while making deliveries. The Order is effective April 10, 2020 at 11:59 p.m.—click here to read the complete order.
A covering over the nose and mouth may include a face mask, homemade mask, or other cloth covering such as a scarf, bandana, handkerchief, or other similar cloth covering. The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention prepared a brief video that demonstrates a simple way to make a face covering with everyday household items. Watch the video here.
This Order also encourages all individuals working at other essential businesses to wear face coverings and other personal protective equipment, such as gloves, subject to availability of the items.
The Order encourages for the face coverings to not be surgical masks or N-95 respirators, if possible, as those are critical supplies that must continue to be reserved for healthcare workers and other medical first responders, as recommended by current CDC guidance.
This order only applies to those facilities and customers within Town boundaries.
