CLEVELAND — Visitors entering any Cuyahoga County government building will have to wear a face mask. On May 14, County Executive Armond Budish signed an executive order requiring the wearing of a face masks inside any county building to help reduce the spread of COIVD-19.

All county employees will be required to wear a mask when in a common area within a building or if the employee’s workspace is within 6 feet of a common area and there is no barrier at least seven feet high surrounding the workspace.

“To reduce the spread of COVID-19, I have signed this executive order in accordance with Ohio Department of Health guidelines,” Budish said in a news release. “The health and safety of our residents and employees is my top priority, and I am going to continue to do everything I can to keep our employees and the public safe.”

Under the order, a face covering does not need to be worn if someone has a health condition that advises them not to or while an employee is working alone in a space isolated from others.
