City of Pearland Re-Extends Health and Safety Order
The City of Pearland is extending its current health and safety order that requires businesses to post a policy requiring face coverings until 11:59 p.m. on August 26. The extension is in-line with regional health authorities that are also extending local mask orders due to concerns regarding COVID-19 case counts, rates of infection, and hospitalizations.
The original health and safety order requires that all commercial businesses in the City of Pearland that offer goods or services to the public must implement a policy requiring all employees and visitors over the age of 10 to wear a face covering. Face coverings include professional-grade and homemade masks, scarves, bandanas and handkerchiefs.
Businesses must post their policy in a visible location to provide notice of these health and safety requirements to employees and visitors. Business who fail to develop, implement, and post this order may be subject to a fine not to exceed $1,000 per violation.
In addition to this health and safety order, the City is also encouraging businesses and residents to continue social distancing and hand sanitizing.
