MAYOR PALMIERI ENCOURAGES RESIDENTS TO WEAR A FACE COVERING WHEN VISITING ESSENTIAL BUSINESSES
In an effort to promote public health and slow the spread of the Coronavirus, Mayor Palmieri is encouraging residents to wear a face covering when visiting essential businesses.
The Mayor also supports a businesses’ discretion to institute a policy that mandates individuals wear a face covering before entering its respective facility.
Earlier this week, Governor Cuomo issued an Executive Order mandating employees of essential businesses wear a face covering. The Mayor is encouraging customers to do the same as it will enhance public health and safety.
A YouTube video, featuring United States Surgeon General Dr. Jerome Adams, demonstrates how individuals can make their own face covering with everyday household items. The video can be found at https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=tPx1yqvJgf4&feature=youtu.be.
Mayor Palmieri stated, “This is an unprecedented situation and everyone has a role to play in protecting our community. It’s very simple; the more compliance and cooperation we have from the public, the more lives we will save.”
