Beginning Thursday, October 1, a new ordinance went into effect in Alexandria, Virginia requiring that a mask is worn over the nose and mouth in indoor and outdoor public places.
The ordinance, which was adopted by City Council on September 12, expands on a state executive order that has required masks in most indoor public settings since May 29. Wearing masks has been proven to limit the spread of COVID-19.
Find information about mask requirements, the state executive order, and helpful tips and videos about how to wear masks correctly. The City has also produced numerous signs, flyers, and videos that explain when, where, and how to use masks while COVID-19 remains present in the community.
