What is a facial covering? What does it do?
Facial coverings help prevent the spread of COVID-19 and help keep you and those around you safe. The use of facial coverings may reduce transmission by more than 50%. Facial coverings should cover your
nose AND your mouth and comply with the CDC recommendations. Please note facial coverings are IN ADDITION TO, and NOT a substitute for, the required social distancing.
Who has to wear a facial covering and when?
Generally stated, facial coverings MUST be worn by all persons when obtaining any good or service from
any establishment, and by all persons working in those establishments during in-person interactions with
the public (regardless of distance). These general rules apply to all establishments, including businesses, stores, and amenities.
Persons who must wear facial coverings include:
Members of the public when obtaining any good or service or otherwise visiting any establishment, including entering, exiting, and otherwise moving around within the establishment.
What are the consequences of violating an Emergency Order?
Violation of an Emergency Order is a second-degree misdemeanor subject to fines up to $15,000 per repeated violation, imprisonment up to 60 days, or both.
Some of our members and visitors may consider these guidelines extreme, but we take cautious guidance from Ellen G. White: “God will not work a miracle to keep those from sickness who have no care for themselves, but are continually violating the laws of health and make no efforts to prevent disease. When we do all we can on our part to have health, then may we expect that the blessed results will follow, and we can ask God in faith to bless our efforts for the preservation of health” (Councils on Health, p. 59).
