    VALLEJO, CA – In a unanimous vote, City Council has passed an Emergency Order requiring the use of face masks in public spaces at theTuesday night City Council meeting.

The decision to enact this emergency order was not taken lightly by the City Council. It was a bold and necessary action to set this precedent for our community in addressing its concerns.
     
    The beginning of the Emergency Order states “Each person over the age of five years old shall wear a mask or cloth face covering which covers both mouth and nose (“Face Mask”) at all times when in an enclosed space open to members of the public…”
