FACE MASK GUIDANCE RELEASED
Today, Governor Mills released Executive Order #2 (FY 20/21) which increases enforcement of face covering requirements as was announced last week. As further information or guidance is posted, we will pass that along.
From the Executive Order:
Retail stores with over 50,000 square feet of shopping space (as defined in Executive Order 28-A-2 FY 19/20), eating establishments, bars, tasting rooms, and lodging operations and accommodations (as defined in Executive Order 57 FY 19/20) located in the Counties of Cumberland, Hancock, Knox, Lincoln, Sagadahoc, Waldo and York, or in the Municipalities of Auburn, Augusta, Bangor, Brewer, and Lewiston shall implement measures requiring customers to wear face coverings. Such measures may, for example, include denial of entry or service. The establishment’s responsibility under this section is in addition to compliance with all applicable Executive Orders, State of Maine guidance and the Restarting Maine’s Economy COVID-19 Prevention Checklists, including the use of signage stating that face coverings are required.
The Order may be enforced by any governmental department or official that regulates licenses, permits or otherwise authorizes the operation or occupancy of eating establishments, bars or tasting rooms, lodging operations and accommodations, businesses, buildings, parks and campgrounds. A violation may be construed to be a violation of any such license, permit and other authorization to which pertinent penalties, such as a revocation of said licenses or permits, may be assessed. The Administration has established a reporting form for alleged violations of the State’s health and safety protocols.
