St. Joseph County requiring face masks be worn in enclosed public spaces or places of business

NOW: St. Joseph County requiring face masks be worn in enclosed public spaces or places of business

ST. JOSEPH COUNTY, Ind. – The St. Joseph County Public Health Authority issued an order that requires anyone going into an enclosed public space or a place of business to wear a face mask at all times when six feet of distance can’t be maintained.

The order goes into effect May 4 at 11:59 p.m. and will last until July 4.

Exceptions to this requirement will be made for people with health issues where a face mask is ill-advised, or the face covering prevents someone from delivering or receiving services.

The order will remain in effect until the level of immunity to the coronavirus reaches 70% of the population, as determined by serological testing.

Additionally, any business open to customers is ordered to have alcohol-based hand sanitizer readily accessible at the entrance and near all high-touch surfaces.
