Joines Amends Public-Speaking Provision of Mask Order

Masks required

Mayor Allen Joines has amended his city-wide mask order to allow performers and public speakers to remove their masks if they are at least 10 feet away from audience members.         

“After consulting with the local medical community, including Joshua Swift, the Forsyth County Public Health Director, and Dr. Christopher Ohl, an Infectious Disease Specialist, I have determined that it would be appropriate to modify the exemption relating to speeches, performances, and broadcasts by reducing the distance requirement from twenty feet to ten feet,” the order states.

All other provisions of the mask order signed Aug. 16 remain unchanged. The revision was issued as the ninth amendment to the State of Emergency declaration Joines initially issued March 13, 2020. The full text of the amendment is posted at CityofWS.org/COVID19.
