Mask Mandate – Mandatory Wearing of Masks :
In keeping with the Governor, Mayor and the Mecklenburg County Public Health department suggestions, the City of Charlotte adopted wearing masks as a safety and health standard. As a reminder, this applies to all city and contractor employees while indoors and in open areas, public areas, and in work spaces where social distancing is difficult to maintain or not possible. If you are unable to wear a cloth mask, due to a medical condition, you must wear a face shield as approved by Risk Management.
You can read the latest order for N.C. here: Governor’s latest executive order.
Practicing the 3 W’s: Always remember to wear a cloth face covering over your mouth and nose, maintain a safe social distance from others, and wash your hands often. It’s the best way to keep yourself and others safe.
