Face coverings are required when inside commercial businesses in Waco and McLennan County

How can a business be compliant with the order to wear face coverings?

  2. You must notify your employees and visitors of the policy by posting signage in a conspicuous location (for example, at the entrance to the business, in employee breakrooms, at job sites, and at points of sale).
