As COVID-19 continues to spread across the globe and across our state, city leaders have taken proactive steps, but we need the public to do their part by washing their hands, practicing social distancing, cancelling events where large crowds are expected and listening to the recommendations of the ADPH and CDC professionals. Our goal is to slow the spread of this virus so that our healthcare system is not overburdened. Please remain vigilant and make smart decisions as we tackle this together.

Mayor Reed issues executive order requiring face coverings or masks be worn in public

Post Date:06/17/2020

MONTGOMERY – Mayor Steven L. Reed has issued an executive order requiring masks or face coverings in public places with the City of Montgomery to slow the spread of COVID-19.

The order requires face coverings or masks to be worn at all times by people over the age of two years old and who can medically tolerate doing so when in public places with 10 or more people present in Montgomery. Similarly, face coverings or masks must be worn in outdoor public spaces by those older than 2-years-old in outdoor spaces when there are 10 or more people within six feet of one another. Face coverings or masks are not required for those exercising outdoors – specifically walking/jogging, in the privacy of one’s own home, in one’s own vehicle or when outdoors with less than 10 people. Other exemptions include those working in non-public office spaces, patient medical exam rooms or when wearing a mask poses a greater mental or physical health and safety risk.

Failure to comply with the order is punishable by a fine of $25. The order goes into effect June 19 at 5 p.m. and will continue until it is rescinded, superseded or amended.
