Milton City Council rescinds emergency declaration mandate of face coverings


Milton City Council rescinded the Emergency Declaration mandating face coverings within city limits at the Special Called City Council Meeting held on June 29, 2020 at 5:30 p.m. The city recommends residents still adhere to CDC social distancing guidelines. The council voted unanimously to rescind the mandate.

On Friday, June 26, 2020, Mayor Heather Lindsay ordered an Emergency Declaration mandating face coverings within the city limits of Milton beginning 12:01 a.m. on Sunday, June 28, 2020. Lindsay said despite mitigation efforts, the number of positive COVID-19 cases have spread within the City of Milton, Santa Rosa County and surrounding areas.  The mayor said using face coverings has been identified as a measure to assist in preventing individuals who may be shedding the virus from spreading it to other people. In an effort to stop the spread, Lindsay said this is a way to keep both the community healthy and businesses open.
