In a news release yesterday, Montgomery County Health Officer, Dr. Travis Gayles, stated that shoppers will need to wear cloth masks or face coverings beginning Monday when they go to grocery stores, pharmacies and large retail stores.
The new health order also requires that retailers establish a limit on the number of customers that can be in the store at a time, and that those lining up to go in must adhere to social distancing guidelines.
Children under 2 years old or people who have difficulty breathing are not advised to wear masks.
Under the order, stores must provide employees with clean restrooms that have soap and sanitizer. And, stores must allow workers to wear masks or face coverings, and they must let employees wash their hands at least every 30 minutes.
Appropriate signage and markings to reinforce social distancing and spacing must be displayed, as well.
Those who do not follow the new order may be fined $500 and a $750 fine for each subsequent violation.
