Does No Mask Mean No Service?
As a means of preventing the COVID-19 virus, face masks have become a part of our daily attire. But now, as businesses are re-opening and people are leaving their homes, confusion is arising as to where and when you must wear a face mask.
Can a Business Force Customers To Wear Face Masks?
The short answer is yes. It is comparative to the regulation of wearing a shirt and shoes while inside a business. Since businesses are private property, they can enforce dress and behavioral rules, as long as they are not engaging in discrimination.
In essence, it is for the business to decide whether they want to require their customers to wear a mask. This means some businesses can elect for their customers to not have to wear masks while inside their business, even when the city or county that customer lives in requires them to wear a mask outside of their home. Ultimately, the power is in the business owner (not the customer).
What Are The Regulations In Your California City?
As we’ve seen there are different rules surrounding COVID-19 in, not only the different states, but in the different cities across the U.S.
As far as COVID-19 Mask Requirements in California goes, some cities have said that they are requiring face masks inside businesses. These cities include Burbank, Inglewood, Long Beach, Pasadena, Orange County, and Fremont.*
Some counties in California have even stricter requirements which require anyone leaving their home to wear a face mask. These counties include Los Angeles County, Riverside County, San Bernardino County, Sonoma County, San Francisco County, Yolo County, and the city of Buena Park.*
What Constitutes a Face Mask?
If you’re wondering what fabricates a “face mask,” the CDC has offered guidelines that state: the mask should fit snugly against the side of the face, be secured with ties or ear loops, include multiple layers of fabric, allow for breathing without restriction, and be able to be laundered and machine dried without damage or change to the shape.
