Governor Polis signed Executive Order 2020-039, mandating that all employees in critical businesses or critical government functions, as defined in Public Health Order 20-24, who interact in close proximity with either the public or other employees, wear either medical or non-medical face masks as dictated by their job duties. In addition, employees are required to wear gloves when in contact with customers or goods, if those gloves are provided by an employer.
The Alamosa County Public Health Department would like to advise all critical businesses currently in operation that this order is in effect and that face coverings are required by employees who meet these definitions. Please note that face masks may be either medical or non-medical in nature depending on the nature of the employees’ job duties.
Please remember that professional cloth masks are not required. As long as the nose and mouth are covered by a fabric covering, employees are complying with this order. This order is in effect until May 17th, 2020, unless further extended by Executive Order.
