Today the Stillwater City Council voted to extend the current face covering ordinance (No. 3452) through Ordinance No. 3463 to remain in effect through Feb. 28, 2021. Residents and visitors should expect to continue following the current rules and regulations for face coverings through this new expiration date.
This vote comes after the council met for a special meeting to pass the extension before the ordinance expired on Nov. 30. Watch the meeting replay at https://youtu.be/eZPJoXT3YIg.
The ordinance requires that everyone wears a face covering in all public spaces, including educational institutions, food services, retail and personal service establishments that provides goods or services directly to the public. Exceptions outlined in the ordinance include, but are not limited to, persons with medical, mental or developmental conditions, children under age 5 (unless required by school or day care to wear a face covering), and non-public areas or workplaces. See details and answers to common questions at Stillwater.org/covid-19.
Acceptable face coverings include R95, KN95, dust masks, procedural masks, cotton bandanas, neck gaiters, running buffs and some tightly woven scarves. Cloth face coverings fashioned from household items or made at home from common materials at low cost can be used as an additional, voluntary public health measure.
The City has an Ordinance 3452 Hotline (405.533.8533) that businesses or residents may call to report non-compliance or if they have questions.
