The City of Valdez has instituted a Public Health Mandate requiring the wearing of protective masks or cloth face coverings in indoor public and communal spaces.

According to the mandate, all people over 5 years old shall wear a mask or cloth covering the mouth and nose in places like grocery and retail stores, restaurants, and bars.

Coverings must also be worn when using public transportation, taxis and ride-sharing services.

The mandate provided exceptions, including one for children under 5 years old, and one for individuals with a medical condition or a physical or mental disability whose condition precludes the wearing of a face covering.

The city indicated that it “reserves the right to use all available enforcement options to assure compliance.”

The mandate goes into effect Friday, July 10th at 5:00pm.
