MASK ORDINANCE EXTENSION 10/14/20



Oklahoma City’s face mask ordinance remains in effect until at least Dec. 7 after the City Council voted Tuesday to extend the requirement to wear face coverings in indoor public places. The Council has discretion to revisit the expiration date at future meetings.

Public health officials say face coverings are key to slowing the spread of COVID-19.

Evidence shows there’s a high risk of infected people spreading the virus with their breath if they don’t use a face covering. Evidence also shows infected people can spread the virus even if they don’t have symptoms, underscoring the importance of mask-wearing even for people who feel healthy.

People can report violations of the mask ordinance to the Action Center using one of four ways:

• Online at okc.gov/action
• By email to action.center@okc.gov
• By text message to (405) 252-1053
• Or through the OKC app at https://www.okc.gov/residents/action-center/okc-connect-app

The Action Center staff will make a report that is routed to OKC-County Health Department, whose inspectors will respond to reports.

When responding, inspectors will first offer a mask or an opportunity for the person to leave the public, indoor space.
