Masks Now Required for Most in Madison County – What does this mean?
According to Huntsville Mayor Tommy Battle, COVID-19 hospitalizations have increased 660 percent since June 19 and the number of positive cases as tripled. Madison and Limestone counties are considered a level “high” risk due to the number of diagnosed cases per 100,000 residents.
Madison County Public Health Officer Dr. Karen Landers has issued a health order requiring most to wear a mask in public, though law enforcement is not required to issue fines.
Face coverings are required while using public transportation systems, in indoor spaces of business or public use, and outdoors where more than 10 people have gathered and a social distance of six feet or more is not an option.
According to WAFF 48, face-covering exemptions include:
- Children age 2 and under.
- Persons while eating or drinking.
- Patients in examination rooms of medical offices, dental offices, clinics or hospitals where their examination of the mouth or nasal area is necessary.
- Customers receiving hair care services, temporary removal of face coverings when needed to provide hair care.
- Occasions when wearing a face-covering poses a significant mental or physical health, safety or security risk. These include worksite risks.
- Although not mandated, face coverings are strongly recommended for congregants at worship services and for situations where people from different households are unable to or unlikely to maintain a distance of 6 feet from each other.
- When effective communication is needed for hearing-impaired persons and those speaking to a large group of people, provided the speaker can stay at least 6 feet away from other persons.
- Indoor athletic facilities. Patrons are not required to wear face coverings while actively participating in permitted athletic activities, but employees in regular interaction with patrons are required to wear face coverings or masks.
- Private clubs and gatherings not open to the public and where a consistent 6-foot distance between persons from different households is maintained.
