Facemasks Required for San Diego Essential Workers

San Diego County officials announced Thursday that essential workers are required to wear face coverings such as face masks or bandanas beginning Saturday April 4, 2020.

Planet Apparel has readily available bandanas for local businesses.  If you place an order by 11am Friday April 3, 2020 they will available for pickup between 6am-10am Saturday April 4, 2020.

Employees that work with the general public are required to have some form of cloth mask to prevent the spread of coronavirus.  The face covering should not be masks needed by health care workers but rather bandanas or scarves.  According to Supervisor Nathan Fletcher it is mandatory for but not limited to essential workers at grocery stores, pharmacies, and gas stations.

Businesses that are still operational must establish physical distancing and hygiene procedures and post them at store entrances by Tuesday April 7, 2020.

These new guidelines come as California Governor Gavin Newsom stated the benefits of face masks when social distancing is hampered by crowded public spaces.

The known Covid-19 cases have risen to 966 in San Diego with the death toll now standing at 16.  As the coronavirus pandemic grows it is vital for our essential workers manning the frontlines to protect themselves and the public.
