City Council Amends Emergency Order
Posted on 11/03/2021
In response to the global Novel Coronavirus (COVID-19) crisis, the City Council voted to amend Mayor DeLong's mask order until 12:01 a.m. on Saturday, November 20, 2021. 

Masks are now only required inside a school building where any students from kindergarten up to and including 5th grade are attending class, unless eating or drinking.   The amendment was executed at 9 p.m. on Tuesday, November 2 and the newly amended order is in effect until November 20, 2021.

The Order states:

To ensure that schools may operate as safely as possible, public and private schools shall require face coverings or masks for all persons inside a school
building where any students from kindergarten up to and including 5th grade are attending class, unless eating or drinking. All persons must wear a mask when
riding on a school bus unless documentation has been submitted to and approved by the school for a medical mask exemption.

1. The following individuals are exempt from wearing face coverings or masks while inside school buildings:

a. Persons with a medical condition, mental health condition or disability that prevents wearing a face covering or mask that, other than in the case of an emergency, have provided documentation of such condition or disability that has been approved by appropriate school officials pursuant to school guidelines. This includes persons with a medical
condition for whom wearing a face covering could obstruct breathing or otherwise unable to remove a face covering without assistance, as well as those who are unconscious or incapacitated;

b. Persons communicating with a person who is deaf or hard or hearing, where the ability to see the mouth is essential for communication; and

c. Persons who are alone in a separate room or office.
