Mask Recommendation

Orange County Mayor Jerry L. Demings strongly recommends that all residents – vaccinated and unvaccinated – consider wearing a mask indoors while in a crowded environment, as well as suggests businesses to display signs to encourage patrons to wear a mask when indoors. It is important that with COVID-19 variant cases on the rise, residents must do everything possible to protect themselves and their loved ones, which includes getting vaccinated, continuing to test and following CDC health and safety guidelines.

The teams visited nearly 7,000 business owners and provided free face masks, hand sanitizer and signage during the course of 214 days.
