Beginning on Friday, April 10, 2020, workers and customers must wear face coverings (such as a bandana, scarf, or other cloth face covering) over their noses and mouths when working at or visiting grocery stores, restaurants, and all other essential businesses in the City of Culver City.
The City Manager today issued a Public Order requiring these further protections against the spread of COVID-19, following City of Los Angeles Mayor Eric Garcetti’s issuance of the same order on April 7, 2020.
New Face Covering Rules
Employees who work at, customers of, and visitors to the types of essential businesses listed below, must wear face coverings over their noses and mouths.
Employees must wash these face coverings frequently–at least once a day.
Single-use face coverings must be properly discarded into the trash.
The face coverings do not need to be medical-grade masks or N95 respirators (these are needed by healthcare personnel).
The face coverings can be fabric coverings, such as scarves or bandanas.
Other Rules to Protect Worker and Customer Health
