Face Coverings

PINELLAS COUNTY ORDINANCE | CITY OF LARGO REQUIREMENT

The City of Largo will continue a regional response to align our public safety initiatives with state and local authorities. Largo Leadership has decided to follow the guidelines in Pinellas County's ordinance requiring face coverings in indoor settings by the public. This decision is based on COVID-19 trending data, the County's leading public health officials, and CDC guidance. Local face covering requirements will be effective on June 26 in all City of Largo facilities. Learn more about requirement details, and how you can help slow the spread.

WHY FACE COVERINGS?
Your face covering protects others. Their face covering protects you
. As Florida COVID-19 positive cases continue to rise, City Leadership is encouraging you to help preserve the health and wellness of our community. In addition to wearing a face covering, here are three easy ways to protect each other:

  • Stay home if you are sick.
  • Everyone must practice social distancing.
  • Wash your hands frequently.
CDC guidelines say that the use of cloth face coverings helps to slow the spread.  COVID-19 spreads mainly from person to person through respiratory droplets produced when an infected person coughs, sneezes, or talks. These droplets can land in the mouths or noses of people who are nearby or possibly be inhaled into the lungs. Studies and evidence on infection control report that these droplets usually travel around 6 feet (about two arms lengths).

View the Pinellas County Face Coverings Ordinance for requirements on when and where to wear face coverings throughout the County.
