4/17/20 -Executive Directive - Wear Face Coverings

Everyone is expected to wear a face covering in public settings


Mayor Przybylo has signed Executive Directive 2020-01, which directs the Niles community to follow CDC guidelines and wear a face covering when out in public to help prevent the spread of COVID-19, effective immediately. It includes situations such as shopping for groceries and working in or patronizing businesses that are open to the public, as social distancing can be difficult to maintain in these enclosed public spaces. The directive does not apply when people are walking or running outside, provided they are maintaining 6-foot social distancing from others. It also does not apply when driving alone in your car, while eating and drinking, or when doing so creates a greater risk.

The Mayor’s directive also allows businesses to refuse admission or service to individuals who are not wearing a face covering that covers the nose and mouth.

Homemade cloth masks are acceptable for this directive, provided they cover the nose and mouth. The Village understands that many residents may have questions or concerns about this new directive, and appreciates the cooperation of the public.

More information, instructions for making your own cloth face covering, and a notice that businesses may download and post, are available on our website at www.vniles.com/masks.
