Biscoe updates mask requirements, safety guidelines
Friday, June 19, 2020 by Elizabeth Pagano
With the secret of how to require masks now revealed, Travis County Judge Sam Biscoe has followed the lead of other municipalities and issued an order that “all commercial entities in Travis County that provide goods or services directly to the public must develop and implement a health and safety policy related to Covid-19. The Health and Safety Policy must require, at a minimum, that all employees and visitors to the commercial entity’s business premises or other facilities wear face coverings when in an area or performing an activity which will necessarily involve close contact or proximity to co-workers or the public where six feet of separation is not feasible.” The order, which is effective as of 11:59 p.m. on Thursday, June 18, is embedded below. Unless modified, it will expire Aug. 15.
