Important Information About Face Coverings

Published:  June 12, 2020

Dear County Employees,  

As on-site activities increase, it is extremely important that all employees follow the rules regarding the requirement to wear a face covering.  To be clear:  

Face Covering” means a covering made of cloth, fabric, or other soft or permeable material, without holes, that covers only the nose and mouth and surrounding areas of the lower face.  You must wear one when reporting to work on-site or in the field. For complete details on Face-coverings, please see the most recent Health Order appendix C – Face Coverings

You must wear a face-covering while inside a closed building unless you are alone in a closed room.

  • If you work in a cubicle or open plan area, you must wear a face-covering at all times when others are present, even if you are distanced.
  • You must wear a face-covering in any common areas such as hallways, stairways, elevators, copy/supply rooms, restrooms, etc.
  • If you are in your office, you must wear a face covering if anyone enters the room for any period of time.  

Face coverings are distinguished from N-95 and other surgical-grade masks.  If you have any questions about what proper Personal Protective Equipment you need, consult your manager before you report onsite to work.
