City Administration Mandates Face Masks in City Buildings

Tuesday, July 14, 2020 – Effective immediately, face masks will be mandatory when entering any Green Cove Springs City buildings. This includes City Hall, Public Works Administrative Building, and Green Cove Springs Police Department.

            This policy change applies to anyone entering a City building to conduct business with City staff, or anyone attending a meeting at City Hall, Public Works, or the Police Department.

“We enacted this City Policy change in light of the increasing numbers of new COVID-19 cases in Florida, as well as a concern for the health of staff, the public, and their loved ones,” said City Manager Steve Kennedy.

            Hand sanitizer and disposable face masks will be available in every lobby area for those that do not have a face mask when entering a City building. Mandatory mask notices and availability of masks and hand sanitizer will be placed at all entrances and doors to lobby areas in City buildings. 

            This policy change also applies to City Staff. Staff are required to wear a face mask once entering a City building, while walking to and from staff common areas and offices, and while assisting the public inside a City building.
