City of MV creates declaration of Mask/Face Covering Use

From the City of Mount Vernon…

The World Health Organization has determined that wearing face shields or cloth face
masks has proven to be one of the most effective means to curb the spread of the Covid-19
virus among persons in public settings. To that end, the City Council approved Resolution
#8-4-2020A mandating the use of masks/face coverings in public, and establishing the
guidelines for said use. A copy of the fully executed Resolution containing the guidelines of
mandated use, and possible exemptions can be found on the City of Mt. Vernon’s website at
