On Tuesday, October 27, the Alachua County Commission amended EO 20-50, Paragraph 3, item g, by changing how businesses can be cited for their employees not wearing masks. The amendment to paragraph reads:
Businesses and employers are required to ensure that their employees are using appropriate facial coverings and other methods to protect the employees and public unless the employee meets an exception in Sec. 3(c) of this Emergency Order. The business or employer may be cited, along with the employee, for an employee’s violation of this Section, if the employee is actually engaged in employment-related activities at the time of the violation. Each employee failing to wear a facial covering without an exemption as set forth in this Order shall be treated as a separate violation for which the employer may be cited.
