Governor’s Executive Order 21-102: Monroe County Update

Monroe County is researching the Governor’s Executive Order 21-102 issued earlier today, effective immediately. In the meantime, Monroe County will not be enforcing the county facial covering ordinance enacted to protect citizens from COVID-19. While Monroe County Code Compliance will no longer respond to COVID-19 facial covering-related complaints, individual businesses may still have facial covering requirements in place if they choose. Nothing in the Governor’s Order prevents a restaurant or other business from requiring employees and patrons to wear masks while on the premises. Please remember to continue to wash your hands. If you have not been vaccinated yet and wish to do so, information on vaccinations can be found at monroe.flhealth.gov/vax.
