Burbank Issues Order Requiring Face Coverings
BURBANK, CA (April 9, 2020) – The City of Burbank has issued an Order to require face coverings for workers along with customers patronizing essential businesses. The Order will begin at 12:01 a.m. on Friday, April 10 and remain in place until the termination of the Los Angeles County Public Health Safer at Home Order dated March 21, 2020, unless this order is explicitly terminated or extended.
All workers who work at businesses or perform services that are considered Essential Businesses must wear face coverings over their noses and mouths while performing their work. This order applies to workers of the following Essential Businesses under paragraph 13 of the Los Angeles County Public Health Safer at Home Order dated March 21, 2020. These face coverings must be provided by the employer at the employer’s expense.
Additionally, all customers and visitors of Essential Businesses must wear face coverings over their noses and mouths. The face coverings should not be medical-grade masks or N95 respirators, but should be fabric coverings, such as scarves and bandana coverings or single-use face coverings.
At this time, the face coverings required by this order for workers are not medical-grade masks or N95 respirators, but rather, fabric coverings, such as scarves and bandanas. All workers required to wear these face coverings must wash any reusable face coverings, for the health and safety of themselves and others. Single-use face coverings must be properly discarded into trash receptacles.
An Essential Business owner may deny service to anyone not wearing a face cover.
Per the County Public Health Order all employers must continue to implement social distancing measures for customers, visitors, and employees that provides a six-foot buffer, to the extent possible, between individuals.
