Face coverings continue to be required when inside commercial businesses
in Waco and McLennan County

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

  • Adopt a Health and Safety Policy as described in the order.
    • At a minimum, the policy must require all employees and visitors to wear a face covering in your business when you cannot ensure sufficient social/physical distancing (6 feet between persons from different households).
  • 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).
  • You must implement the policy by:
    • Notifying your employees and visitors of the policy;
    • Requiring your employees to wear a face covering while at work when maintaining sufficient physical distance from another person is impossible or unlikely; and
    • Requiring visitors to wear a face covering when visiting your business or facilities.
