What are the details?
Effective April 18, 2022, face coverings will be required in all indoor public spaces, including businesses, restaurants, government buildings, childcare settings, and schools. While masks will be required in indoor public places, there is no vaccine requirement for places that serve food or drink.

The mandate will remain in place until the city metrics fall into the “All Clear” category, which takes into account average daily COVID-19 cases, hospitalizations, and case increases over a 10-day period.
