City of Whitewater Requiring Face Coverings in Public Places Until Further Notice

The Whitewater City Council voted unanimously this past Tuesday, July 21, to require masks in buildings that are open to the public to reduce the spread of COVID-19.  Starting Saturday, Aug. 1, anyone who is age 5 or older in the city must wear an intact face covering when in an area of a building that is open to the public; this rule further applies when anyone is in line, be it indoors or outdoors for pick-up orders of food, drinks or goods.  The ordinance is effective until the end of the year unless the council decides to terminate it earlier.
