Beverly Hills, CA – In an ongoing effort to promote public health and reduce the spread of COVID-19, the City of Beverly Hills today issued an order that requires all people, including essential workers, to wear face coverings when they leave their place of residence, including for walks through the neighborhood.
The order, which takes effect Friday, April 10th at 6 p.m., requires coverings such as a scarf, bandana or cloth. Medical-grade masks are encouraged for health and emergency workers only.
“We believe this action will help to protect and ultimately save lives,” said Mayor Lester Friedman. “While we continue to ask our community members to remain at home, those who do go outside and the people they encounter will be safer.”
Drivers traveling alone or with members of their households do not need to wear face coverings unless they must lower their windows for any purpose such as to interact with first responders, food service workers or others who are not members of their households.
