This ordinance also clarifies that, upon direction from the Assembly, the Manager may change the intent language provided in Exhibit A to Resolution 2889.
  • For Presentation (not for public hearing) Ordinance 2020-35: An Ordinance Requiring a Face Covering in Certain Indoor Settings. This ordinance was drafted at the request of Assemblymember Hale for presentation and referral to the Committee of the Whole for further discussion before introduction or public hearing. This ordinance would require people to wear a face covering when in a publicly accessible indoor location or an indoor communal area outside the home. There are exceptions for people with disabilities or young children. This ordinance is very similar to the Anchorage mask mandate.
