The masking ordinance is set to expire April 30, 2021 at 11:59 PM unless extended, amended or rescinded.
Under this ordinance, everyone over the age of 11 is now required to wear a face covering when in public spaces in the city limits of Ozark.
Except as otherwise provided in this Order, all businesses shall require Face Coverings to be worn as described in this order. All businesses that are open to the public are recommended to post a sign at public entrances that the use of Face Coverings is required by those seeking to enter the business.
This Order describes face coverings as a device that covers the nose and mouth. Face Covering includes, but is not limited to:
Exemptions are made for those with a medical condition, mental health condition or disability that prevents wearing a face covering, and when any party to a communication is deaf or hard of hearing and not wearing a Face Covering is essential to communication.
Other exemptions for when inside Ozark city limits include (situations in which a mask can be removed is listed further down):
No, you do not need a doctors note or documentation proving you have a medical condition, disability, or mental health condition which prevents you from wearing a mask for purposes of this order. However, you may be required to provide certification to your employer.
When should I wear my face mask? Here are a few examples. Please note this is not a comprehensive list.
The Mayor hereby specifically encourages that enforcement of this Order should be administered by education and an opportunity for voluntary compliance, followed by a warning, and then a civil citation after warning.
