Memphis Mayor Signs Mask Ordinance into Effect

MEMPHIS, Tenn. — Mayor Jim Strickland signed an ordinance Thursday requiring people to wear face coverings while inside businesses, government buildings, health care facilities and using public transportation.

Employees of essential and nonessential businesses also must wear masks if they work near other people.

Exemptions listed in the ordinance include children 12 and under and workers who perform their duties away from other people. Wearing a face covering is recommended but not required for people engaging in outdoor recreation, such as jogging or bicycling.

The ordinance was passed by the Memphis City Council on June 16 and violations are a misdemeanor. It does not spell out a specific punishment, other than a warning and court fees of no more than $20 per violation.
